In a thrilling pitching duel that lasted a grueling nine innings, Guyer was able to squeeze past Wylie 1-0 on Tuesday night in walk-off fashion.

Pitcher Cade Branum put the team in position for the win, going 8 1/3 innings on the mound while allowing only three hits and holding Wylie scoreless. Reliever Jake Crabtree was credited with the win after getting the final two outs in the top of the ninth, but Branum's dominance set Guyer up for success.

After managing only one hit heading into the bottom of the ninth, the Wildcats got Ryan McCans on base with the only extra-base hit of the day. After advancing to third, McCans scored the winning run on a sacrifice fly from Jordan Bemineo.

Guyer will look to build off the momentum of the win in a rematch against Wylie at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
