Washington grabbed a 4-0 lead in the second inning, but Jefferson City struck back with two in the third, one in the sixth and two in the seventh and eighth to take 7-4 lead into the ninth. Washington rallied with two runs in the final frame and had the bases loaded with two outs and Tony Helfrich at the plate.
