LEOPOLD—Tony Backer drove in the winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning as Perry Central edged Orleans 7-6 in PLAC baseball Wednesday.
With the score tied 6-6, Austin Hauser led off the bottom of the eighth by getting hit by a pitch.
T.J. Lamon sacrificed him to second and Clint Cassidy was then intentionally walked.
Backer followed with a single to left-center field to score Hauser with the winning run.
That was the Commodores’ only lead of the game. They fell behind 5-2 in the first three innings.
