BERWICK — In a game where neither squad could string together hits, it was Berwick’s nine-hitter Kevin Laubach who came through in the end.

After 11 long innings, it was Laubach who singled up the middle with the bases loaded to give the Bulldogs a 2-1 win over Wyoming Area on Wednesday in a WVC baseball interdivisional game.

It was the second 11-inning game for the Warriors in as many weeks. Wyoming Area beat Dallas — also by a 2-1 score — on Friday.

Jorden Stout had a double to lead off the 11th for Berwick (8-2), one of just four hits allowed by Wyoming Area pitchers. Kyle Miller started and went nine innings for Berwick while Alex Klinger didn’t allow a hit in two innings of relief for the win.

Zach Lopatka led the Warriors (6-4) at the plate, going 2-for-3 with an RBI.
