CRESAPTOWN — Cole Holler finished off a three-run rally in the bottom of the seventh by providing a walk-off single that scored Jake VanMeter and lifted the Eagles past Kiwanis Wednesday night at Jim Holler Field.

Cameron O’Neal led off the seventh with a single and Jackson Bauer walked before Christian Wilhelm sacrificed them to second and third with a bunt. VanMeter hit his second double of the day to drive in O’Neal and Bauer and came home with the winning run when Holler singled down the  left field line.
