AAABA Tournament: Martella's rallies for historic win

Updated: Saturday, August 9 2014, 03:40 AM EDT

JOHNSTOWN -- From the agony of defeat to the thrill of victory, all in about 15 minutes.

Martella's Pharmacy defeated New Orleans 4-2 on Thursday night at Point Stadium, Johnstown's first win over New Orleans since 1970.

New Orleans took a 2-1 lead in the second inning, a lead it held to the eighth inning. Martella's loaded the bases with no outs when Pat Gully popped a shallow fly to right-center field. New Orleans second baseman Cole Freeman caught Gully's pop fly, spun and threw home in time to get Anthony Fanelli tagging from third base. The Boosters got out of the inning unscathed.

In the ninth inning, Martella's put runners on first and second base with one out. Kyle Morrow blooped a single into right field, scoring Ian Helsel from second to tie the game 2-2. The throw home went sailing into Martella's dugout and Tony Strasiser scored from first to give Martella's Pharmacy a 3-2 lead.

After going up 4-2, Brantley Rice earned the save in the bottom of the ninth inning to advance to the AAABA Final Five. Martella's Pharmacy will play New Brunswick on Friday night at 7 p.m.
