It was a big day at the plate for the Falcons, Corey Chostner kept the Falcons alive in the top of the 7th inning by hitting a 2-run homer to tie the game up at 13-13. Matis Crouwel was able to then drive in the game winning run on a sacrifice fly into shallow right field. The flock of Falcons frenzied on to the field to congratulate their teammates after the dramatic win.

DeVon Jennings double twice and drove in 4 runs.  Chostner also drove in four runs on the day. Adam Hanan had a two-run shot early in the game to give the Falcons the lead, but it didn’t last long as ECC let a 9-3 lead evaporate and were down 11-9. After tying the game up at 11-11, it looked like the momentum would swing back in favor of the Falcons and it did.
