    Especially when that win is in an elimination game of the 30th District Tournament and is against the same team that eliminated Anderson in the same round a year ago.

    Pinch-runner Josh Brown scored when Bullitt East botched a possible double play ball in the bottom of the seventh for the 7-6 victory.
