With two outs, Jonah Brannon walked, Cameron Head doubled home two runs, and Jase Ryan Felker singled home a pair to cut the Owensboro lead to 7-6. After Brown singled, Felker scored on an error to tie the game, and Board singled in the go-ahead run. Thomason’s second hit of the inning scored Board for a 9-7 lead.

At the plate, Board finished with three hits. Thomason had two hits and two RBIs, and Felker and Head each drove in a pair of runs as well.
