Lightning Make History With Thrilling Walk-Off Win

Leesburg, FL – “Do you believe in magic?” Down since the fifth inning, the Leesburg Lightning (10-1) used a furious ninth-inning rally to overcome a DeLand Suns (7-7) lead, ending with a walk-off wild pitch from Suns reliever Kyle Wiseman (Lake Sumter CC). Leesburg’s 6-5 win marked their fourth one-run win of the season.

Week 2 Recap: Lightning Use Clutch Hitting to Keep Win Streak Alive

Leesburg, FL - The Leesburg Lightning added all three of this week's game to the win column after a pair of dramatic 7-6 wins and their first 10+ run win of the season. A walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth secured the win for Leesburg in their first matchup with the Seminole County Scorpions on June 12th, and a tight game throughout just barely swung the Lightning's way when they matched up with the Sanford River Rats on June 14th. The Lightning were unable to play three games this week due to weather, two against Seminole County and one against Sanford. All three games were scheduled to take place at Sanford Memorial Stadium, where both the Scorpions and the Rats play their home games. Leesburg's win streak now sits at nine games, only one shy of the all-time team record for longest win streak (10 games - 2012).

Lightning Thrash River Rats After Weather Delay

Sanford, FL - The first inning was uneventful. The same can't be said for the second through the seventh innings. The Leesburg Lightning (9-1) outlasted a lightning delay and the host Sanford River Rats (5-7) to claim their ninth victory in a row, only one win shy of the all-time program record for the longest winning streak of 10 games set by the 2012 Lightning. The game ended after seven innings with the Lightning ahead 14-3 due to league mercy rules.
