The final game went into the 7th inning tied 0-0. With 2 outs in the top of the 7th inning, Pharr Yarn at bat, Toby Bradshaw hit an RBI single. Another run scored on a throwing error, before Jim Barnhill stepped up and connected for a 2-run Single to gave pitcher Leroy Wynn a 4-0 lead. He got Wix out in the bottom of the 7th to preserve the shutout. Wix entered the final as the highest scoring team in the tournament with 67 runs (and only gave up 21 runs, with 2 shutouts), which makes Leroy Wynn’s shutout that much more unbelievable.

For Wix, Hallman and Doss both had 2 hits.  For Pharr Yarn, Leon McDaniel was 13-24 (.542) and Roger Coon was 11-22 (.500). Toby Bradshaw hit the only 2 HR that were hit by Pharr Yarn.
