PULLMAN, Wash. - Shea Vucinich's grand slam capped a six-run sixth inning to lift Team Vucinich past Team Fanelli 10-6 in Game 4 of the Washington State Fall World Series, Tuesday.
Team Vucinich trailed 6-2 after three innings, but cut its deficit in half on a two-out, two-run single by Riley Tubbs in the top of the fourth.
In the sixth, Taylor Hudson led off with a home run to right-center field to pull the visiting team within a run at 6-5. A RBI-double by Adam Nelubowich tied the game 6-6. After an intentional walk to Kyle Johnson loaded the bases, Vucinich laced a ball off the light standard in left-center field to put his squad on top 10-6.
Team Vucinich took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first on a RBI-single by Matt Argyropoulos. Garry Kuykendall led off the bottom of the frame with a home run to tie the game and Matt Fanelli gave his team a 2-1 lead with a two-out, RBI-single.
Team Vucinich tied the game in the third on a triple by Riley Tubbs and a single by Nelubowich. In the bottom of the third, Fanelli was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded and three additional run scored due to a pitch maximum rule in the series.
The fifth and deciding game is scheduled for 4 p.m. Thursday.
