With three outs left and four runs down the Pistons battled back in the top of the sixth inning to defeat the Raptors, 12-11, last Wednesday at Youth Sports Inc.

Spencer Emerson had an RBI single to left to ignite the Piston rally. Triston Rethman then hit a double to the right field gap that scored two more runs.

Trailing 11-10, Sammy Hogsett batted in two additional runs to give the Pistons a one-run lead in the final inning.

The Raptors didn't score in their last at bat, but they did plenty of damage before that. The Raptors scored four runs in the bottom of the fifth to jump out to an 11-7 lead. The Raptors' Aaron Funk hit a two-run inside-the-park homer in the inning and Brady Caldwell had a two RBI single before the Pistons heroics.
