An odd play at second base ended up allowing the go ahead run to score for Dent. Dent’s Tyler Doll attempted to steal second, but did not attempt to slide. He instead attempted to hurdle Predators’ second baseman Sam Ecker. Ecker was unable to hold on to the ball, but the umpire declared the runner was safe anyway due to fielder obstruction. The Predators made an argument it was runner interference, but the call stood.
The 2016 Predators will be left with a sour taste until they pick up the bats next spring, after being bounced from the Region 16C tournament in a pair of one-run losses last weekend.

Tim Zastrow helped spark the offense on Sunday by blasting a two-out, two-run double off the fence in left centerfield in the first inning.
The Predators have shown that when they have their full lineup, they can hit the cover off the ball.
