Through eight and a half innings the score was tied at 4.

Marcus Warnock finished the job with a walk-off single scoring Fulkerson and giving the Bears the win.
Warnock had three RBIs and Hernandez went to for four with two RBIs.
Jordy Craddock and Paul Bruce each added two hits for the BEars.
The Bears had a productive sixth inning with four runs and a 4-3 lead.
Linden rallied with one run in the seventh.
Kyle Norton pitched seven innings and had three strikeouts.
Fulkerson pitched a scoreless eighth th to keep the game tied and give us the chance to win the game in the eighth, said Pinocchio.
