In the seventh inning Houston Sharpe received a walk-off hit, bringing in Ethan Abben from second base and winning the game.

Tigers coach Joe Sczublewski said Dylan See-Rockers pitched a strong first game and was credited for being the winning pitcher.

Faribault came back strong during the second game, winning 12-9 over Albert Lea.

“We gave them too big of a lead to overcome,” Sczublewski said.

The Tigers will play at home again on Thursday at 5 p.m. against Rochester Century.
