    The Breds had posted a 4-0 lead after four innings and appeared to be on the way to an easy triumph until Nicholas County picked up three runs in the top of the fifth inning.  
    A walk, two singles and a double plus a couple of wild pitches accounted for the Nicholas County runs in the inning.
