PEMBROKE - Lumberton scored three runs in the top of the 10th to pull away for a 6-3 victory over in-county rival Purnell Swett Thursday night.

Justin Leggett and Dakota Hayes started the winning rally with back-to-back singles. Both Leggett and Hayes raced around to score on an infield chopper by Austin McNeil that scooted into shallow right field. Chris Power's double down the right field line plated McNeil with the contest's final run.

Both squads will play in this weekend's 20th annual Slugfest at Fairmont. The Pirates will open the tournament at 10 a.m. Saturday against West Bladen, while the Rams will face St. Pauls at 4 p.m.
