From my vantage point (in the stands right behind the plate) I thought the "winning run" should have been called out! Great game though! The fireworks were ok, not great, but ok.
Photos: July 4 at Dwyer Stadium -- fireworks and Muckdogs victory

The 2,266 people who packed into Dwyer Stadium on July 4 were treated to more than just fireworks. They got to see the kind of nail-biter game that makes baseball America's pastime.
Down 2-1 going into the bottom of the ninth, the hometown heros strung together a single, double and single, to plate two runs and walk off with a victory.
The winning run scored on a close play at the plate (see above, and the slide show for more pictures of the score) when Anthony Melchionda scored on a single by Jacob Wilson.
It was the first lead the Muckdogs enjoyed all night.
The low-scoring game meant that nine innings passed quickly.
Muckdogs management entertained fans with a game of musical chairs before the sun faded enough to allow the fireworks show to begin.
