Follow through: Thorsby first baseman Jason Price eyes a ball he just launched into the Maplesville outfield. The ball was caught—but was deep enough to allow a runner on third base to tag up and score.

Thorsby’s baseball team defeated Maplesville, 12-10, on Wednesday in a game of wild momentum swings.

Visiting Maplesville took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first, but Thorsby stormed back for five runs in the second and extended the lead to 9-2 in the third.

MHS cut it to 9-7 in the fourth and tied the game at 10 in the sixth.

Brantley Maddox and Wesley Smitherman scored for the hosts in the bottom of the sixth, and Cody Carroll—who came on in relief in the fourth inning—pitched a perfect seventh for the win.
