Villa Madonna scored 10 runs in the final two innings to overcome a late four-run deficit in a 13-10 win over Silver Grove on Tuesday.

The Blue Lightning trailed by two entering the seventh inning, but senior catcher Morgan Trusty doubled home a pair to tie it.

Sophomore first baseman Abby Bittlinger put Villa Madonna ahead for good with an RBI double, and seventh-grade right-hander Brooke Meier added two insurance runs with a single.

All of those hits came with two outs, as the Blue Lightning loaded the bases but lined into a double play, erasing the runner at first.
