Burlington, VT - J.P. Sportman sparked a 6-5 come from behind victory Wednesday for the Vermont Lake Monsters over the Batavia Muckdogs.
Oakland's 27th round pick in last month's MLB Draft, Sportman (La Salle Institute/CCSU) belted a three-run homer in the 7th inning.
And then in the bottom of the 9th, his line single to right delivered the tying run. On the play, a Batavia error allowed then the winning run to score triggering a wild celebration around the former South Troy Dodger.
The Lake Monsters players streamed from the first base dugout to storm a triumphant Sportman at first base.
