Solid hitting continued for both teams through the fourth and fifth innings making the score 10-6. In the sixth, Knights senior third baseman Jaxson Johnson hit a solo home run over the right field fence increasing the Knights’ lead to 11-6. 

 

The Titans’ comeback started in the bottom of the sixth inning with a two-run homerun and a couple RBI’s to cut the deficit to 11-10. The Titans’ run continued in the seventh inning, plating the tying runner with an RBI single to right field.

 

The next two innings were scoreless, until the Knights put two more runs on the board in the tenth and took the lead, 13-11. In the bottom of the tenth, the Titans were unable to answer, and the Knights took the victory.
