A game dominated by pitching ended with a walk-off single off the bat of Mike Rosol to send the West Mifflin faithful home happy. West Mifflin right-hander Ben Visnesky (top left), a Gannon commit ranked No. 110 in the PA Class of 2018, tripled to lead off the bottom of the 7th inning and scored on Rosol's single following a pair of intentional walks that loaded the bases.

South Park opened the scoring in the top of the 4th inning when Eric Vaughn was hit by a pitch, stole second base, and scored on a one out single off the bat of Stephen Moore.

West Mifflin drew even in the bottom of the 5th inning when Nick Ackerman (top center), a Pitt-Greensburg commit, doubled to open the inning and scored on a single by Cam Leskovitz.

Visnesky and 2019 left-hander Kevin Vaupel (top right) went the distance for their respective teams. Visnesky earned the win allowing one run on three hits with 10 strikeouts over seven innings of work. Vaupel, ranked No. 122 in the PA Class of 2019, worked six plus innings allowing two runs on five hits with five strikeouts.

South Park dropped to 6-5 on the season with the loss. West Mifflin improved to 8-2 overall and 5-1 in section play.
