WYALUSING — It took extra innings but Wyalusing edged Canton 2-1 in NTL baseball action Monday.

The Warriors started off the scoring in the top of the first as their top two batters drew walks.

After a sacrifice bunt Cameron Bellows scored on a wild pitch.

It looked like Canton was going to make it 2-0 as Brendon Landis tried to steal home. He was thrown out, though, by pitcher Chandler Brown. Canton coach Bob Rockwell appealed for a balk but didn't get it.

That one run held up until the bottom of the sixth as Brown drew a lead-off walk. Conner Barton came in to pinch run and stole second. He would advance to third on a Jon Morrison bunt single.

Two batters later and with two outs Barton would score on an error off the bat of Shane Fuhrey to tie the game up.

Then in the bottom of the eighth Chase Houser drew a one-out walk. He would have Shawn O'Dell pinch run for him.

After an intentional walk a flyout was recorded but it allowed O'Dell to reach third.

That's when the Rams went back to the small ball as Fuhrey bunted to the pitcher Nate Deegan. O'Dell made a run for home and beat the throw to get the winning run.

Zach Bruyn and Kyle Warner both went 2-for-4 for Wyalusing while Brown and Morrison had the other two hits.

Brown started and went 6 2/3-innings for the no decision. He struck out seven while allowing two hits, five walks and one earned run.

Morrison went the final 1 1/3-innings for the win. He struck out one while allowing three walks and one hit.

Deegan was 2-for-3 with a double for the Warriors while Nick May also had a hit.

Byron Marnati started and went four innings for a no decision. He struck out one while allowing five hits and no walks.

Michael Smithers then came on for two innings of relief. He struck out one while allowing one hit, three walks and one unearned run.

Deegan went the final 1 2/3-innings for the loss. He allowed two walks and one earned run.
