The Rams broke the tie in the bottom of the ninth when a Hurricane error permitted the game-winning run to cross the plate.

The Tigers led 2-0 early as Kage Akipoleki singled home Rylee Kent and Akipoleki scored later on an error in the top of the first.

Highland tied it with two in the bottom of the second and the score stayed knotted until the extra innings. Using the Kansas tiebreaker (a runner is placed at second base with no outs), Hurricane couldn’t get a run across in the top of the ninth. The Rams were able to end the game when a bunted ball by Trevor Jones with no outs was thrown away, allowing the base runner, Nate Poulson, to score from second.

Hurricane, 2-2, is co-host of the Southern Utah Spring Kickoff Tournament next week and will start it off with a home game Thursday night against Timpview at 6 p.m.
