At Caldwell, George Price used an RBI single to help Skyline baseball walk off in a 5-4 win over Fruitland.

It capped a memorable outing for Price, who went 3-for-5 with a run and an RBI in the victory.

Skyline needed just two pitchers to secure the win: Brayden Nickels struck out four in five innings, and Ryan Horvath fanned four in three frames.

Skyline will take on Bishop Kelly at 7 p.m. Friday, which is Day 2 of the ICCU Spring Break Classic.
