A Tyler Ickes single in the bottom of the ninth on Saturday scored Austin Cunningham for the winning run to give Claysburg a 6-5 victory over Patton in nine innings.
Michael Runk and Cunningham were both 2-for-4 and Ickes finished 2-for-5 for Claysburg, which also got a double and two RBI from Ethan Lewis.
Adam Polites had two hits and Dom Milanesi scored twice for the Redmen, who lost for the first time in the double-elimination tournament and will host once-beaten Bedford at 3 p.m. today.
Claysburg, the lone unbeaten team remaining, will host Ebensburg at 3 p.m. today.
If Claysburg wins today, the winner of the Patton/Bedford game would have to defeat Claysburg twice. If Ebensburg wins, Claysburg sits a day and Ebensburg will play the winner of Patton/Bedford and the winner of that game would play Claysburg in a winner-take-all title game.
