The team finished, 20-1 and defeated the Caddo Reds in a come-from-behind, walk-off after Guy Koenig tied the game with a two-out, inside-the-park homerun and Mark Leemaster singled to opposite field with the bases loaded to complete the walk-off victory.

Jason Bottenfield and Jonathan Duran each finished with a pair of hits and Travis Hitzeman added a double, but the Spirits offense sputtered against solid pitching from the Knights, and a handful of fielding errors proved costly as the Spirits gave up just one earned run in an 8 to 0 loss.
Congrats to the Knights for their achievement and congrats to these three players for their Waxahachie Autoplex Players of the Game honors.
The loss concludes the Spirits 2018 season of baseball as the squad prepares for 2019 and a trip to Las Vegas for the MSBL / MABL National Las Vegas Kickoff Classic.
A special thank you to all of our fans and to our club sponsors who help make Spirits Baseball possible!!
Finchum had 3 hits and a pair of RBIs on the night and was the team's winning pitcher, which included 5 strikeouts. Jonathan Duran scored a pair of runs and picked up the save, defensively. David Tipton rounds out your Waxahachie Autoplex Players of the Game with a sacrifice fly, RBI, and run scored. Congrats to all three of them for their performances! The Spirits will host the Knights on Wednesday night at Graham Field with an 8:45PM first pitch.
