Bobby Kachel led off the 13th with a single and was bunted to second by Neal Hebert. Gajewsjki then hit a routine ground ball that the Bandits’ shortstop couldn’t handle, allowing Kachel to speed all the home from second with the winner.

Tyler Willman and Matt Wells combined for 14 strikeouts in 12 innings, with Wells allowing Manitowoc’s run.
Kachel finished 3-for-6, while Zac Peterson and Doug Beattie each chipped in two hits in the game. Brock Guetzke picked up a first-inning RBI for the Giants first run.
