In a closely contested game, Junction City needed someone in their lineup to come through with a big hit. The Brigade squandered chances with runners in scoring position in the bottom of the fourth and sixth inning, but it was only a matter of time until the big hit came.

In the bottom of the seventh inning, the Brigade had the bases loaded with two outs, and Edward Scott elevated a hit over the infield into right center field to score two runs. It gave Junction City a 3-1 lead, which ended up being the final score Friday night at Rathert Stadium.
