Shed Long scored from first on a throwing error to help the Blue Wahoos in a walk-off win

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos' 4-3 win over the Mississippi Braves on Tuesday night did not leave their sellout crowd disappointed. The Reds' Double-A affiliate came into the ninth inning down 3-0, but they managed to do something amazing to seal the win.
In the bottom of the ninth, Jose Siri hit a sac fly to left field, Gavin LaValley scored. Shed Long then singled on a line drive to right field, that scored Taylor Sparks with TJ Friedl ending up at third. Then, following a wild pitch by Chad Sobotka, runners advanced. There was also a throwing error at the plate. And the results? Well ...

Yep, Long scored from first on a wild pitch. 
That's a fun way to win a ballgame.
