Saylor Timmerman would reach base on balls in the 10th but was left stranded at 2nd for the Thunderbirds.

The 12th provided what would be the game’s only run when Ellie Winkelman singled in Jensen Mix with 2 outs for the walk off win, Mix had reached on an error by the 3rd baseman. Kenna Mix earned the win Pitching all 12 Innings, allowing 1 Hit, walking 1 and striking out 17. Saylor Timmerman took the loss for Lakeland, going 11 2/3 Innings allowing 2 Hits, 1 Run, 1 Walk and Striking out 23.
