Ashton Luke tied the game at 7-all reaching on an error and then Jason Dukes, who just missed an opposite field base hit on a shot that was just foul, was hit by a pitch, with the bases loaded, to put the Pups up 8-7. Zeke Barnett drove in a run with a base hit and Douberly walked with the bases loaded to make it 10-7. Braddy ended the scoring with his third hit of the game. The third baseman’s single to right field scored two Bullpups.
