Gambler/VDL gets pair of softball wins

Gambler/Valley Discount Liquor doubled up on the Wooden Nickel Strugglers in a 24-12 win in men’s Gold League softball action Wednesday night at the Marshall Softball Complex.

The clobbering by Gambler/VDL was the only game on the night not to be decided by one run.

The Strugglers picked up one of those one-run wins, holding off a late-inning rally by Larson’s for a 13-12 victory. Larson’s scored 11 of its 12 runs from the fifth inning on.

Gambler/VDL also nabbed a one-run victory, stopping a seventh-inning rally by Ralco one run short in an 18-17 win.

In the final game of the evening, Mama’s/Gambler plated 12 runs over the final two innings, including four in the bottom of the seventh, to top Borch’s/Gambler 14-13 in walkoff fashion.
