With the help of an error, Mo Wolansky reached second base and later scored off Brown’s double. A series of errors allowed three more Bears to score. Shawnee State won in walk off fashion as a wild pitch allowed Mackenzie Riley (SR/Proctorville, Ohio) to score from third base in the bottom of the seventh frame.
