Herbert Hoover wins in dramatic fashion on a walk-off grand slam over Independence


Herbert Hoover advanced to the Class AA state championship on Thursday night after Hunter White's walk-off grand slam to beat Independence, 7-3.

Hoover entered the bottom of the seventh trailing 3-2, but senior Corey Bird tied the game at 3 with an RBI double down the left field line.

Two batters later it was Hunter White's turn.

He teed off on Brian Sexton's fastball over the left field wall to give the Huskies the shocking win over the Patriots.

Herbert Hoover will now face Fairmont Senior Saturday morning at 10 a.m. with the 2013 WVSSAC Class AA state championship on the line.
