Watch Crow’s walk-off hit win it for Clovis North
In a back-and-forth baseball game Monday night at Clovis North High, it figured that the team batting in the bottom of the seventh might have an advantage,
San Joaquin Memorial took the lead in the top of the seventh only to see Broncos pitcher and third baseman Brady Crow hit a bases-loaded, walkoff single to give Clovis North the 6-5 win in the 50th Fresno Easter Classic.
The Broncos (16-4) are ranked No. 4 in The Bee’s Central Section Top 10 and are second behind Buchanan in the ultra-competitive Tri-River Athletic Conference.
Crow said his two-strike hitting approach is what helped him secure the winning hit.
“It was something I was working a lot on before the game,” Crow said. “I was able to choke up...and hit a line drive over the second baseman.”
It wasn’t the only fashion in which Crow contributed to the win.
The senior pitched the first three innings before being taken out due to back tightness, according to coach Jeff Prieto. He allowed two runs in the effort.
