With two outs in the top of the seventh of the PIAA Class A Western Final at Rich Kuntz Memorial Field in Punxsutawney, the Bishop McCort Crushers had a runner on third and their own pitcher, Brad Coleman, at the plate.

ECC had held a 1-0 advantage since the fourth inning, but the Crushers had left men stranded in all but the sixth.
