MANHATTAN, Kan. - Sophomore Lance Miles drove a single up the middle to give the Black team a 2-1 walk-off win in extra innings over the White team in game two of the Fall World Series on Thursday at Tointon Family Stadium.

Sophomore Clayton Dalrymple was hit by a Jake Whaley pitch to lead off the bottom of the eighth. After Dalrymple stole second, the White team elected to intentionally walk senior Ross Kivett, but Whaley threw a wild pitch on the second ball to allow Dalrymple to advance to third.
