The Hagerstown Braves were looking for the perfect climax to their comeback.
Rodney Young provided it by delivering an RBI double to right-center field in the bottom of the eighth inning Saturday to give the Braves a 7-6 victory over the Fayetteville AA's in the first game of the best-of-seven Blue Ridge Adult League baseball championship series.
The second game of the series will be played this afternoon at 2 at Municipal Stadium.
Mark Shives set up Young's heroics with a two-out single to center.
"The ball was up in the strike zone and that is pretty much where I like it," Young said. "I just sat on it and I stroked it. Earlier, it didn't seem like we were in the ballgame. We usually score the majority of our runs during the late innings of the ballgame. We have got a lot of college ballplayers on the team that have the desire to win. We can usually get the clutch hits when we need them."
