Late runs lift Johnson City over Elizabethton

JOHNSON CITY—A two-out, bases-loaded situation spelled doom for Elizabethton.

With the game knotted at four apiece in the bottom of here eighth, a wild pitch from Twins reliever Randy LeBlanc plated Jose Goody and an Oscar Mercado infield single plated a pair as Johnson City stormed to a 7-4 victory Tuesday at Cardinal Park.

The Cards pull to a half-game advantage over the Twins in the West Division entering today’s league-wide off day.
