The No. 22 Blue Jays (35-11) have relied on last year’s disappointment to fuel their run to Friday’s game against No. 7 Babson (38-8) in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Birmingham-Southern loaded the bases in the bottom of the 10th, causing the Blue Jays to bring in an extra infielder. Rich Misischia scored on a grounder to the drawn-in infield to win the game.

The Blue Jays next face Babson at 2:15 p.m. Sunday in an elimination game. Hopkins beat Babson, 7-6, on Friday in their first game of the World Series when Tim Kutcher hit a two-out double in the bottom of the 10th.
