FRONT ROYAL — The Post 53 Front Royal American Legion baseball team rallied from a four-run deficit in the ninth inning to grab a 14-13 win over Leesburg Post 34 on Friday night at Bing Crosby Stadium.

Trailing 13-9 heading into the bottom of the ninth, Front Royal got a bases-loaded double from Johnny Rutherford to pull within one run. Hunter Partlowe followed with a double to deep right to plate the tying and winning runs.

Front Royal trailed 10-2 after Leesburg posted a seven-run inning in the top of the second, but Post 53 chipped away after that.
