Brooks responded in the seventh, pitching a shutout frame for the win.
It seemed unlikely that Juniata would be able to mount a comeback from down seven, but a six-run fourth inning changed everything.
C.J. Bonson reached safely to lead off the inning as a throw to first was dropped, and the floodgates burst open. Bailor followed up a walk and two hit batsmen by tattooing a ball into right-field for a two-run double. Three more runs crossed the plate due in part to savvy baserunning and cut the lead to 8-7 with runners on second and third. With his back to the wall, Brooks reached back and rung up Jared Hutchinson to escape the threat.
Bailor pitched his way out of a jam in the top of the sixth, striking out the last three hitters with the go-ahead run on third. The clutch pitching from Bailor loomed much larger considering the way Brooks settled into a groove.
Mifflinburg wasted little time getting their bats in gear, bringing home two runs in the first inning on a double from Brooks and a groundout from Miller. Brooks drove in another run in the second, as Mifflinburg added two to their lead at 4-0.
Four straight hits to start the third inning helped Mifflinburg extend its lead to 8-0.
