In their final game of the tournament, the Deputies produced another big comeback. They got down 11-1 in the first inning to the Westco Express. After nine total runs in the second and third innings, Laramie completed their wild ride on the weekend. A three-run fifth inning gave the Deputies a 13-11 win. Wes Yerty was a hero with the go-ahead two-run single in the frame.
