Chillicothe Paints Win 2010 Championship

Paints win title in dramatic
fashion

August 11, 2010

The Chillicothe Paints are the 2010 Prospect League
champions after a dramatic two-run walkoff home
run by Ian Nielsen in the bottom of the 11th inning.

The Paints had trailed by as large a margin as 5-2,
but battled back to trail by just one headed to the
bottom of the ninth. They loaded the bases with
nobody out, but were down to their final out after a
line drive double play left runners at second and
third.

Cody Elliott hit a high chopper to shortstop and
beat the throw to first by less than half a step to
score the runner from third and send the game into
extra frames.

Danville retook the lead, 6-5, in the top of the 11th,
setting the stage for Nielsen's two-run shot to end
it.
