Springfield city leaders rebounded from a slow start to score eight runs in the final two innings and complete a come-from-behind victory, 8-7.

 

The county's bats dominated early, as county officials scored 4 in the first inning and eventually led 7-0 after five.  But Springfield rallied to score 4 in the 6th and 4 more in the 7th, winning in the game in the last frame on an RBI hit.

 

The first ever city-county showdown was a charity event ahead of Sunday's Springfield Sliders game at Robin Roberts Stadium at Lanphier Park.  The game was heard live on 970 WMAY.
