PULLMAN, Wash. - Derek Jones and J.K. Dykes each drove in two runs and Gray defeated Crimson 4-3 in game three of the Washington State Fall World Series.

With the victory, Gray stayed alive in the best-of-five series after Crimson won the first-two games. Game four is slated for 2 p.m., Sunday.

Sal Arena and Brett Jacobs led off the top of the third with singles for Gray against Crimson starter Adam Conley (1-1). Patrick Claussen moved the runners up with a sacrifice bunt and Jones plated two runs with a single. One out later, Taylor Ard singled and Dykes followed with a single to score Jones and give Gray a 3-0 advantage.

Crimson got on the board in the bottom of the fourth a double by Jay Ponciano, a sacrifice bunt by Stetson Olson and a RBI-ground out by Josh Bircher.

In the fifth of the seven-inning contest, Dykes delivered a sacrifice fly off Anthony Drobnick to increased Gray's lead to 4-1. Olson and Collin Slaybaugh each had a run-scoring single in the home half of the fifth against J.D. Leckenby to pull Crimson within a run at 4-3.

Despite a pair of walks in the sixth, Crimson failed to tie the game against Brandon Williams and Gray's Scott Simon set Crimson down in order in the seventh for the save.
