JUSTIN JOHNSON, Standard-Examiner Staff

PLAIN CITY — Kru Flint, Jack Hulce, Anthony Durbano and Corbin Richards tallied consecutive two-out singles to score three runs for Roy in the top of the 11th inning — then Brody Perkes slammed the door on Fremont in the bottom half to preserve the Royals’ 9-6 marathon victory Tuesday.

Fremont brought the winning run to the plate after loading the bases in the bottom of the 11th, but Perkes ended the game with a strikeout.

Roy held on for the win after blowing two chances to close the game out earlier.

Fremont scored a run in the bottom of the seventh to tie the game at 4-4, then scored twice in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game at 6-6.

Roy jumped ahead early with a four-run second inning. Perkes singled home a run and Flint doubled home two more in the inning.

Fremont slowly chipped away until tying the game in the seventh. Jestin Schickel singled in a run to get Fremont on the board in the fourth and Tyler Clark plated two more runs with a single in the fifth.

Kade Skeen singled home Haze Hadley to tie the game in the seventh for Fremont.

Hulce hit a two-run homer in the top of the ninth to give Roy a 6-4 lead, but another Skeen RBI single followed by a sacrifice fly from Blake Barrella tied the game in the bottom half.
