The Firebirds blew a 4 run lead in the 5th inning and squandered a bases loaded no out opportunity in the 6th inning, and still escaped with a walk off win in the 7th when Colton Hicks singled in Elliot Kurtz for the win.
Hicks finished the game going 3-4 with 2 rbi’s. Jesse Reliford added 2 hits and an rbi.
The win moved the ‘Birds to 14-9 on the year and 5-6 in the GWOC East.
