From there, starter Jacob Behrends went to work shaking off the unearned run. He allowed just one hit until the top of the sixth inning, and scored the Bombers' third run in the fourth inning on a double steal with Noah Flowers..
His second hit came under dubious circumstances. Dieterich's Tanner Traub popped one straight up, Flowers called off Maxey at third, but the ball fell anyway.
Behrends walked two straight after that, but looked to get out of the inning. A Clayton Campton line drive went right to Malachi Maxey, who flipped to Levi Maxey at short for a quick double play. Behrends had two strikes on Reed Shoemaker, but Shoemaker fought off a few pitches and laced a two-out, two-run single to tie the game at 3-3.
Levi Maxey came in in the seventh, walked Alex Bohnhoff and allowed the go-ahead run. He escaped the inning with just the one run, setting up Parks' heroics.
"Jake pitched a great ballgame," Beccue said. "We do need to make a couple routine plays we didn't make that hurt us, but luckily we were able to keep the game close and get a big hit when we needed to."
Behrends went six innings, allowed three hits and three walks for three runs (two earned). He struck out nine. Maxey earned the win in relief.
Flowers went 3-for-3 on the day, while Behrends was 2-for-3 with a double. Parks was 1-for-4 with a double and the two RBIs, and Hall was 1-for-3 with an RBI.
Alex Bohnhoff took the loss for Dieterich, going 6.1 innings and allowing four runs on nine hits. He walked two and struck out eight.
Traub was 2-for-3 for Dieterich, Jake Bohnhoff was 1-for-3 with an RBI, and Shoemaker was 1-for-3 with two RBIs.
Still, VanScyoc was happy with his team's performance.
