Sterling lined a double into the gap in left-center, and Robert scored all the way from first base with the winning run in the bottom of the sixth inning, as the A's won in dramatic fashion, 10-9 tonight at Plaisted Park.
The game entered the bottom of the sixth tied at 9-all. Robert worked the count for a walk, and Sterling hit the first pitch into the gap to end the game.
The A's rallied back from a 9-2 deficit heading into the bottom of the 4th inning. The Green Machine struck for seven runs on six hits in the 4th, evening things up and setting the stage for the dramatic ending.
Reese led the A's with three hits (including two doubles) and two RBI. AK and Sterling each had two hits for the Wolfpack.
Reese pitched the first three innings, and Cam shut the door over the last three innings for the win. Cam gave up no runs while striking out seven, including striking out the side in order with two runners on in the 6th inning.
The A's raised their record to 10-3 with the win, keeping pace with the Rangers in a tie for first place. The A's close out their regular season with a game against the Pirates at New Lions on Saturday.
