EAST PRAIRIE -- A walk-off home run by Mikey Russell in the bottom of the seventh inning gave the East Prairie Eagles a 3-2 win on Friday night over the visiting St. Vincent Indians.

Russell, who went 2-for-4, gave Scott the win in the bottom half of the seventh inning. Scott gave up two earned runs on four hits. He also struck out eight.

Dalton Golightly went 2-for-3 with two RBI and stolen base to lead the Eagles.
