Saranac explodes in 10th inning, rallies past Plattsburgh

PLATTSBURGH — The No. 24 Saranac softball team helped define an idiom Tuesday.

It’s better late than never.

After scoring one run through nine innings, the Chiefs’ offense exploded to score seven times in the 10th for an 8-1 defeat of Plattsburgh High in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference action.

“We were up 1-0 until the bottom of the sixth when Saranac tied it up,” Hornets coach Jordan Oshier said. “The game went into extra innings and the score stayed 1-1 until the top of the 10th when Saranac rallied.”

Saranac finished with four hits in the ballgame, including a triple from Summer Gillespie.

Samantha Swiesz belted a triple in the first inning, and then scored on an overthrow from the catcher to third base.

Tori Trim pitched a complete game for the Chiefs and was credited with the win. Trim surrendered two hits. Jamie Bedard, who also went the distance, suffered the loss.
