Twice he stepped up to bat with the bases loaded.
Twice catcher Ryan Hornback delivered.
And after all was said and done, Hornback had four RBI and the Spikes won the rubber game of their three-game series at the Batavia Muckdogs, 6-2.
"I was just looking for something that I could drive to put something in the gap," Hornback said. "Luckily I got the job done twice."
Both third baseman D.J. Crumlich and center fielder Barrett Barnes scored two runs for the Spikes. Barnes gained both runs off of Hornback's plays in the first and eighth innings. Meanwhile, Crumlich scored with Barnes in the first off of Hornback's single, and again in the third after he reached base with a double.
A three-run eighth inning clinched the win for the Spikes.
Hornback sent Barnes and infielder Samuel Gonzales home off of a double, though he was caught stealing at third.
Infielders Walker Gourley and Jacob Lakind both doubled and Gourley scored to be the final run of the game.
It would be the last inning in which the Spikes scored tallying their runs to a total of six.
"Sometimes it happens sometimes it doesn't, that's the beautiful thing about baseball," Hornback said. "Sometimes you get the hits, sometimes you don't."
Pitcher Clay Holmes pitched his first road start with a win, allowing only one hit and collecting four strikeouts.
He did, however, walk five Muckdogs in the five innings he pitched.
"It was my first road start," Holmes said. "I felt comfortable, but for some reason I didn't have my best stuff. I just found a way to pitch through it."
After a scoreless ninth, the Spikes called in Kyle Haynes to the close the game. After pitching two strike-outs, the team ended their three-game series against the Muckdogs, 2-1.
