they will start a best-of-three series with Yoakum, the South Zone champions.
"The boys have been pretty dominant this tournament," said NL Manager David Werley. "I'm just proud of the way the boys hung in their tonight."
Seguin jumped out to a 4-1 lead after three innings putting the NL in a position they had avoided in their first three contests.
But in the fourth inning, the NL team woke up their bats and started scoring runs.
Josh Prewitt led the 13-run charge by
scoring three runs on the night and Justin Thompson came through with a 2 RBI triple to help the cause.
"Justin had a big hit, Ross Matt had two great defensive plays at catcher," Werley said. "The team came together when they had to."
On the mound the ball was handed to Luis Castillija the first three innings and Daniel Guerrero the final inning.
Zack Picklemann, Ryan Werley, David Whitby, and Thompson each scored two runs and Guerrero, Andrew Scott and Matt all came around to score once.

Associated Press Writer
DALLAS (AP) — Texts’ three NBA teams are preparing for tonight’s draft with different agendas.
The Dallas Mavericks are looking to rebuild.
The San Antonio Spurs are searching for the point guard to run their offense. The Houston Rockets are just hoping lo get lucky.
Dallas has three picks among the first 28, giving the Mavericks a now-or-never chance to turn around the team that’s been the worst in the league the last two years.
“It’s very important,” new player personnel director Keith Grant said. ‘‘When a team builds as we are. this should make us even better.”
Gram and coach Dick Mona have a can't-miss pick at No. 2 and likely will spend their first pick on California point guard Jason Kidd despite his recent off-court problems and the rising stock of Duke’s Gram Hill.
San Antonio’s only pick is No. 22, which is fine because the Spurs may be only one player away from turning last year’s first-round upset victim into next year’s top title contender.
That player is a point guard and it's up to former assistant Gregg Popovich, the team’s new vice president of basketball operations, to find the right person to get the ball to scoring champi • on David Robinson.
An interesting choice to quarterback the Spurs’ offense would
Charlie Ward of Florida State la one of many guards that the Spurt ara looking to draft
be Florida State’s Charlie Ward, the Heis-man Trophy winner bypassed in the NFL draft.
Other possibilities include BJ. Tyler of Texas, Tony Dumas of Missoun-Kansas City and Tony Tolbert of Detroit
For Dallas, the thought of a 1-2-3 combination of Kidd and previous top choices Jim Jackson and Jamal Mashbum is too good to pass up.
In a copyright story, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported today that the Mavericks will definitely pick Kidd.
■ Houston stuck without draft pick
HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Rockets have the NBA championship trophy, but they don’t have a first-round pick in tonight's draft.
And it appeared they’d remain without one based on the offers received by Bob Weuihauer, the Rockets’ vice president of basketball operations.
‘‘Everyone warns one of our siarmg players for a first-round pick and we’re just not going to do that,” Weinhiucr said late Tuesday. “So, it looks like we’re going with the No. 53 pick unless something comes along late. ”
The Rockets, who won the NBA title last Wednesday by beating the New York Kmcks in Game 7, lost their first-round pick in 1990 in the deal that sew Tim McCormick aril John Lucas to Atlanta for Kenny Smith.
So all they’re left with is No. 53 pick overall.
