Bob Thompson of the Brandon Cloverleafs.
Rick McFadyen of Brandon hustles across home plate with the tying run, much to the delight of teammate Dave Bender (15) and the disappointment of Dauphin's Vern Nichol (16) and Lyle Gallant (13). Later in the eighth inning, Bender stroked a single to score Bill Chapple with the winning marker.
