"We will bunt anytime," Catonsville coach Steve McCleary said.
Kreis, who bats third in the lineup wasn't surprised to get the signal.
"I know if he gives me the bunt sign, that he knows the game really well and he wants to do what is best for the team, so in that situation, you've just got to get the bunt down and know it's for the good of the team," Kreis said.
Beautz scored the tying run on a sharp single by freshman Karly DiDomenico.
Catonsville pulled ahead 9-7 with two runs in the bottom of the sixth inning.
Kreis got her only two strikeouts of the game in the seventh inning.
"I was just really focused on getting those outs because my team got me the lead, and in that situation you have to hold onto that and throw strikes and trust them to make out behind you," Kreis said.
Mount de Sales coach Pete Waskiewicz, who is retiring after this season, his 23rd as varsity coach at de Sales, would like to see his team clean things up as they drive toward the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference.
"We've been in front in every game we've lost this year," said Waskiewicz, whose Sailors are currently third in the league standings behind Spalding and McDonogh. "Our defense and our pitching hasn't come through for us," he said.
While Catonsville coach McCleary enjoyed watching his team celebrate a win, he is going to miss coaching against Waskiewicz.
