But Lanham opened the bottom half of the inning with a single, advanced on a sacrifice bunt and eventually scored on a wild pitch, which would have originally loaded the bases.

“Last time, I kind of hesitated a few times and this time I saw it down and went ahead for it,” Lanham said.

Silo got the winning run to second in the seventh before Anderson struck out Leonard Sandler to end the game.

“I just got up there and threw it,” Anderson said. “I just tried to take as much pressure out of it as I could; just get up there and throw strikes. No big deal.”

Sanford said Anderson will start the championship game, and he hopes the offense makes an appearance after tallying just nine hits in two games.

“We've pitched it really well,” Sanford said. “That's one of our strong points is our pitching staff. Now we just got to start swinging a little bit and scoring some runs when they're out there.”
