Jay Gonzalez' two-out single to left in the bottom of the seventh gave the White Team a 4-3 win in Game 1 of the 2011 Fall World Series. Game 2 is scheduled for Thursday at 4pm with Rocky McCord trying to even the series at a game apiece for the Gray Team while Daniel Koger will try to give the White Team a two-game advantage in the best-of-five series.
Gonzalez finished the game with an infield single, a walk, two runs scored and the game-winning RBI and also made two diving catches in center for the White Team.
A Jarred Smith sacrifice fly scored Gonzalez in the fourth to give the White Team a 3-0 advantage before the Gray Team rallied in the later innings.
J.D. Crowe doubled in a run in the sixth to draw the Gray Team to within two runs, 3-1, with just one inning left as all games are seven-inning contests.
Down to its last out with none on in the top of the seventh the Gray Team rallied to tie the game up on Blake Austin's two-run single following a pair of walks and stolen bases. Cameron Blinka had fanned the first two hitters he faced before running into the trouble.
