Aledo shortstop Hayden Hall bounced a ground ball to second base in the bottom of the seventh inning that drove home Sean O'Donnell with the winning run to lift the Bearcats to an 8-7 victory over Crowley Thursday night at the Jerry Durant Classic at Bearcat Field.

After Crowley forced an infield fly for an out, third baseman Zach Scott followed with a single to right field which drove in Smith and cut the Eagles' lead to 7-4.

Second baseman Matt Bishop worked a walk on a 3-2 count to load the bases, and O'Donnell followed with a line-drive single to left field that plated Rinker and Scott to cut the Crowley lead to 7-6.
