B & J had come back in the 6th (4 runs) & 7th innings (9 runs), down 7-1, scoring all 9 runs in the top of the 7th after 2 outs, but 9 OPT batters in order reached base in their 1/2 of the inning with Evan Neislawski driving in the winning runs with a walk-off 2B hit, his third of the game. Roy Iversen had pitched 5 strong innings for OPT in the beginning of the game (2 runs, 6 K's).
