“In the fifth, I pulled them together and asked, ‘Is this it? Is this how our story ends? You've got a huge crowd here waiting to explode. Let's give them a reason to,” Aylor said.

Austin Cranford came on in relief in the fourth and worked 3 1/3 scoreless innings, striking out five.

Cranford appeared to be cruising in the seventh, retiring the first two batters quickly before Charlie Wrona singled and Cranford walked Josh Hassell to give the Comets a chance to retake the lead.

"When his slider's on, he's almost unhittable," Aylor said. "There are some guys the pressure just doesn't get to them, and he's one of those guys."

Ryan McDaniel and Bottoms had two hits each for the Timberwolves.
