WINTER PARK, Fla. -- The Leesburg Lightning (4-6) travelled back to Lake Brantley High School for its second meeting with the Winter Park Diamond Dawgs (9-1) on Saturday night.
The Lightning got on the board early with Sean Mootrey’s (Georgia Gwinnett) second home run of the season, a two-run shot that gave Leesburg a 2-0 lead in the first.
In the third, the Lightning added to its lead when a Wyatt Elbe (Maryville) bases-loaded RBI single got away from the Winter Park right fielder and rolled all the way to the wall. The error allowed all three runs to score and Elbe advanced to third. After three, the Lightning held a 5-0 lead.
However, things took a bad turn for the Lightning in the bottom of the fourth. The Diamond Dawgs capitalized on some timely hitting and Leesburg miscues and put up six runs in the fourth and took a 6-5 lead.
