Electric edge As 6-5

West Carleton Electric edged Ottawa Valley As 6-5 in Greater Ottawa Fastball League play on Thursday night in Carp.

Cory Baldwin had the win for WC, while Ben Broek took the loss. Lane McMurtry had a homer for Valley while Hugh Murray hit one out for the Electric.

Valley put up three in the top of the first. Benny Wade walked, then McMurtry homered. After a ground out, Ryley Burns was hit by a pitch and scored on an error.

WC responded with two in the bottom of the first. Alex Boucaud legged out an infield single, Matt Greer singled and after they advanced on a ground out, both scored on when Murray drove them in with a single.

The Electric went up 6-3 in the fifth. Boucaud singled with one out, and Greer moved to first on catcher's interference. The runners advanced 60 feet on a wild pitch and scored on Steve Cavanagh's single. Murray then homered.

The As got one back in the sixth. Jackson Vance singled to start off the inning, stole second and advanced to third when the throw went to the outfield. Vance scored on Connor Armstrong's sac fly to right field.

Valley threatened in the seventh. With one out, McMurtry hit a double and advanced to third on a defensive miscue. He scored when Broek singled to make it a one run game. However, Baldwin got out of the jam with a pop up to third and a pop up to second.
