WASHBURN — The Bay Battle between Ashland and Washburn got in the books a bit earlier than normal this year, but the game was still an instant classic for local baseball fans as the Lumberjacks rallied to defeat the visiting Merchants 9-8 in extra innings Sunday afternoon.

Ashland grad and University of Minnesota-Duluth pitcher Wyatt O'Bey put the game away at the end for Washburn, scoring the winning run for the hosts on a passed ball in the 10th inning.
