Brodi R. took the plate then had an epic steal at 2nd and 3rd and finished the game with an RBI! Will H. stepped up to the mound and also got the Tigers to swing for a strikeout. Peyton P. with a show stopping double in the 2nd inning had everyone on their feet. Cameron M. showed off with an inning ending catch in outfield and then later stole 3rd base. The Knights fell short to the Tigers 3-5 but showed incredible teamwork and skill.
