With Lewiston leading 14-13, Poland’s Maggie McGlauflin led off the seventh and reached on an error, which allowed her to also take second base. She went to third on a passed ball during Emma Martin’s at-bat. Martin walked and was replaced by pinch runner Faith Bustamante. Alyssa Hart hit the ball to second and an error allowed McGlauflin and Bustamante to score the tying and game-winning runs.

The Knights led 5-1 after the second inning. The Blue Devils evened the score with four runs in the third and added five in the fourth to go up 10-5.
