The Knights remain unbeaten this spring as they pull off a 3-2 balk-off victory in the 9th!

Great defense and exceptional pitching from both sides was the story for most of the night. The Knights struck first with a sacrifice fly off the bat of Hernandez in the 5th. The Senators came right back with back-to-back-to-back singles in the 6th to tie it up. The Senators would then pull ahead in the 8th off of their own sacrifice fly.

The Knights trailed 2-1 going into the bottom of the 9th. Leonard led the charge with a leadoff single. DiMatteo then layed down a beautiful sacrifice bunt to move Leonard into scoring position. Caggiano's third hit of the night was a big one. He hit a drive to deep center, scoring Leonard on a standup double. The game was tied with the Knights winning run in scoring position. Baker hit a hard single to left, but with the outfield playing in, Caggiano is forced to stop at third. With Spicer at the plate and the winning run 90 feet away, the ol' fake-to-third rule change strikes early and hard. Caggiano crosses the plate and the Knights win on a walk-off balk.

Snyder pitched 7 strong innings for the Knights, giving up 1 run and striking out 7. Hernandez pitched the final two to pick up the win.
