With two outs in the bottom of the seventh and a runner on third base, Oakcrest's Ryan Kelly hit a slow-rolling ground ball toward the St. Joseph shortstop that looked like it would be the final out.
Instead, the ball was bobbled, Kelly reached safely, and John Dodson scored to cap off the Falcons' 8-7 comeback win Saturday in the Rohrer Tournament final at Haddon Township.
Dodson had come to the plate with two outs and Oakcrest down, 7-6, in the bottom of the seventh. Jailen Heard, who was on first, stole both second and third. Dodson's double scored him.
That brought up Kelly. Dodson then stole third, and was knocked in by Kelly's ground ball on the next pitch.
Dodson finished 2 for 5 with an RBI and three runs scored. Tyler Manno earned the win, and Ryan Johnson was named tournament MVP after collecting six total hits (4 for 4 in the final).
