Windsor Heights, IA (AP) -- Despite falling behind by as many as seven runs early, Zzz Records came back to score 13 runs in the final four innings to pull out a 19-18 win over rival Bi-Fi Records of Ames.
Bi-Fi Records seemed to take control early, largely behind the bat of Patrick Fleming. He hit four home runs and a double during the game, for a total of 11 RBIs. At the end of the 4th inning, Bi-Fi had built a 13-6 advantage.
Zzz's pitching duo of Erin McBroom and Weeter Kane eventually found their stride, though, and held Bi-Fi scoreless in 4 of the 5 final innings. The Z's were also aided by the deceptively speedy "Shoeless" Trey Cruz, who reached base at least three times on wild throws by SS Jake Haselman.
Bi-Fi's final out came when Devin, of Poison Control Center fame, flew out to OF Karl Siemers, who luckily put out his cigarette just in time to snag the ball.
