For the second game in a row on Tuesday, top-ranked Chattanooga State pulled off a seventh-inning miracle after their backs were to the wall. On Tuesday night, Lacye Walker smacked a home run with two outs in the final inning to tie the game with second-seeded Volunteer State 4-4.
Then Sweetwater's Beth Breeden knocked in the winning run after a disputed play.
The announcer had said the game was going into extra innings after it appeared a Lady Tiger was out at first for the third out after the Walker homer.
It was later ruled that it had been a dead ball instead. After that batter walked, Breeden then delivered a hit to win the game 5-4.
Volunteer State got on the board in the opening frame, then the Lady Tigers tied it in the bottom of the second.
Ali Hart hit a three-run home run in the fourth to pad Volunteer State's lead to 4-1.
Chattanooga State rallied for single runs in the fifth and sixth before the seventh-inning heroics. MeQuilla Franklin scored in the fifth following an error and Andrea Dalton came home in the sixth after starting the inning with a double.
The Lady Tigers are back on the field on Wednesday at 2 p.m.
