After that, Tornadoes Pitcher Keaton Lahmers would hold the Leopards off the board until the final at-bat of the Order Leopard Nation Highlight Videocontest. He gave up just 5 hits during the game and struck out 12 Louisville batters along the way.

Dover knotted the game back up in the sixth inning when Jake Sudduth singled home Ryan Thompson. Suddoth would finished 3-for-3 at the plate with a double and Stoldt also went 2-for-3 to lead the Tornadoes.

Jake Adams walked to start the Leopards seventh. Kerzan then sacrificed Adams to second. Two at-bats later, Deckerd smashed a 2-2 pitch to center scoring Adams from second for the winning run.
