Anderson and Truman squared off in a wild Downriver League game Friday afternoon that saw both teams combine for 23 runs and 25 hits.

It was the host Titans (7-7, 6-3 DRL) on top 13-10 at the end, however, as they came overcame a big deficit late after having squandered a four-run lead.

Through the first two and a half innings, the Cougars (3-8, 1-6 DRL) were up 3-1, but Anderson exploded for five runs in the bottom of the third.

Tyler Hall doubled to start the inning and scored on a single from Blake Sloan, while Jonah Peryam singled and drove in both Sloan and Danny McCoy, and both Joe Galetto and Dylan Voss reached base and later scored.

Down 6-3 in the top of the fifth, Truman hit back with six runs, led by a bases-loaded double from Justin Collins, which plated Terrance McClain, Colin Sweet and Nick Vencelov. Also crossing the plate in the inning were Tyler Hooker, Zack Kaminski and Collins, who scored the final run and made it a 9-6 game.

To add one more run in the top of the sixth, the Cougarsí Jordan Gardner scored on a wild pitch and put his team up 10-6.

The lead was not safe, however, and it was all Titans in the bottom of the sixth.

With the bases loaded, Sloan scored courtesy of a hit batter, McCoy scored after a bases-loaded walk to Voss and then to tie it up, Peryam and Galetto scored on a David Bellon single.

Before the inning was over, Voss, Bellon and Joe Leeming all crossed the plate, as well to make it a 13-10 game.

Sloan took the mound for the final inning and retired the side in order to earn the victory.

For the day, Bellon was 3-for-4 at the plate with two RBIs, Peryman had a hit and two RBIs, Hall was 2-for-4 and McCoy, Sloan, Galetto, Voss and Leeming all had one RBI.

Collins was 2-for4 with three RBIs for Truman, McClain was 3-for-4 with two RBIs and Rone Hopkins was 1-for-4 with two RBIs. Kaminski, Hooker, Jordan Gardner and Justin Littleton all finished with a pair of hits, with Kaminski and Joe Contreras also picked up one RBI.

Next up for Anderson is a doubleheader tomorrow at Northville, while the Cougars are set to host Lincoln Park Monday.
