After Annandale took the lead in the top of the eighth, the Wildcats’ Trey Austvold led off the bottom of the inning with a single. Lucas Nordmeyer reached on a bunt single and Ryan Vraa ripped a shot off the third baseman’s glove to load the based.


Brett Olson grounded a ball up the middle and an error on the shortstop allowed Austvold and Nordmeyer to score the tying and winning runs.

Austvold was 2-for-3 with a triple and Nordmeyer was 2-for-4. Vraa worked all eight innings and struck out 10 to get the win.
