The Pirates’ win came on Senior Day for Wheelersburg and moved their mark to 11-2 in the league trailing SOC II leading Waverly by two games.
After leading by four-runs early, Wheelersburg allowed the Jeeps to tie the game in the top half of the sixth inning before Bryan White drilled three-run shot over the fence to give him a walk-off home run in his last game at home.
“It was Senior Day for us,” Wheelersburg coach Michael Estep said. “I’m just happy for our eight seniors. We honored them before the game. We told our underclassmen we try to do anything to win this game.”
The Pirates travel to Waverly for a make-up game today.
