Highlights from the News 3 Game of the Week baseball matchup Wednesday between Edgewood and Memorial.


Memorial's Nick Newburg hit a two out, two run walk off home run in the bottom of the eight to give the Spartans a 4-2 win over Madison Edgewood Wednesday afternoon at Mansfield in our Prep Mania Game of the Week.

Newburg drilled a 2-0 pitch to right center to give the Spartans the walk off victory.

"Well it was a 2-0 count and I was just looking for a pitch to drive, just get Riley in from second, and happen to put a good swing on it," said Newburg.

Memorial tied the game at 2 in the third inning with Sam Kimbell's two RBI single with the bases loaded.

Edgewood's Aaron Mack gave the Crusaders a 2-0 lead in the third with an RBI single.

These two city teams haven't played each other in a while so the win is special.

"We grew up playing these guys. We only scrimmaged them two years ago, and never played a real game and it felt good to get a win again them," said Newburg.
