Harding came from behind to beat River Valley in the bottom of the seventh 8-7. Trailing 7-2 going into the sixth inning the Presidents rallied scoring 4 times. Austin Allen, Coby Dye, and Alix Goney all had hits to pull Harding within striking distance. Jacob Barr shut down the Viking bats in both the sixth and seventh innings to give his team a chance in their last at bat.
Down to their last out, Nick Hecker hustled out an infield single and then stole second base. Hecker scored the tying run when Isaiah Nelson lined a single to right field. Barr then ripped a single off from the Viking shortstop to score Nelson with the winning run.
Barr picked up the pitching win in relief of Van Dutton. Harding plays next at Triad on Saturday.
