Game two went down to the wire.

In the bottom of the seventh, with bases loaded and the game tied, Dallas Terrell was hit by a Lamar County pitch, bringing the winning run (Ayden Pruitt) across the plate.

A RBI-single by Reed Hamilton put the Tigers on the board first in the bottom of the first inning, scoring Ty Reynolds.
