With one out in the eighth, Meagan Baird hit a double, and was lifted for pinch runner Morgan Slob. After the next batter, Caitlin Houk, grounded out, Herbert singled up the middle to score Slob with the winning run.
Young allowed four hits, walked three and struck out seven in moving to 11-10.
In the second game, Tiffin scored all of its runs in the fourth, as Baird hit an RBI double, and Herbert hit a two-run homer.
