Brunson stealing home capped a four-run fourth inning rally to lead the Tigers to a 4-2 win over Weatherford on Thursday afternoon at the Class 4A state tournament at Edmond Memorial High School.

Brunson, who bats seventh, also supplied the key hit, a two-run single that broke a 1-1 tie.

“Zac's just a good old country kid who comes up big all the time,” said Tuttle coach Travis Owen. “He hit two homers in a game once this year. He's a gamer. He came up big for us.”

Catcher Lane Paul led off the fourth with a double and advanced to third on Cole Sharp's bunt single. Pitcher Connor Litterell tied the game with an RBI single. Brunson's two-run single made it 3-1 and then he stole home for a 4-1 lead.
