After giving up the tying run against Shawnee in the bottom of the seventh, Wapakoneta got creative and forced in the eventual winning run in the top of the eighth in a sectional tournament game Friday.

After reaching on a walk, Maddux Liles created a pickle, allowing Nate Schroer to score from third base.

Wapakoneta advances to the District 5 tournament, where it will play Van Wert at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Elida Middle School.
