A gutsy come-from-behind-effort resulted in a 11-5, seven-inning victory over Johnson City American Tuesday night at Arthur Lady Field.

The CC Americans trailed 2-0 going into its final at-bat, but didn’t have a hit up to that point off Matthew Levi, who towered over them with his six-foot athletic frame.
