RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech's Gray squad knocked off the Black team by a score of 5-4 in a tight fourth game of the Fall World Series off a solo homerun to left center by Bre'shon Kimbell to break a 4-4 tie in the bottom of the eighth.

Tyler Qualls led the Gray team with a 2-4 performance at the plate and two runs batted in, while Kody Neel continued to impress at the plate for the Black team, notching two hits and two RBI, including a two-run homerun in the third inning to stay within one run of Gray.
