Pascagoula, which rallied from 3-1 and 4-3 deficits, led 5-4 heading to the bottom of the seventh inning. After a throwing error allowed the tying run to score, junior Andrew Bird stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and smacked the game-winning RBI single to deep right center field.
In the only other baseball game on the Mississippi gulf coast, the Gulfport Admirals pulled off a 1-0 win over the St. Martin Yellow Jackets. Gulfport junior pitcher Alex Nelms tossed a complete-game shutout.
