Walks helped both teams score early runs as Eastside Market plated two runs in the first without a hit.Three more free passes and a wild pitch put Eastside Market up 3-0 in the top of the second, but Farm Bureau began its rally in the bottom of the inning.Brady McCormack drew a lead-off walk, then would come around to score on a passed ball later in the inning.After McCormack struck out the side in the top of the third, Farm Bureau completed its comeback.Ben Rivers, Brennan Keaton and Gage Walker drew three straight walks, loading the bases for Will Rivers. Will came through with a single to score his brother Ben and Keaton and tie the game at three.
