CRANBERRY - Peyton Sloan played the hero for Optical World on Friday evening in Tri-City Little League baseball action, crossing the plate in the bottom of the sixth for an 11-10 walk-off victory over VFW.

Sloan was the only batter that stepped to the plate in the final at-bat, and he was the only batter Optical World would need as the offensive sparkplug tucked a line drive just inside the right field line at Cranberry Little League field before turning on the jets. He raced around first and second easily enough and, with the ball already on its way in from the outfield, tried to stretch a double into a triple.
