The winning run scored in the eighth on a bases-loaded one out come back to the pitcher, Tanner Boles. Boles got the force at home, but the catcher threw the ball over the first baseman’s head trying to get the double play and the game ended as Taylor Still crossed the plate. Kip Brandenburg and Still had gotten back to back one out singles and they advanced to second and third after a wild pitch. An intentional walk loaded the bases before the error led to the game winner
