It Took 11 Rounds Of Rochambeau To Decide Baseball Game's Winner

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

But when rain canceled the game, the players turned to an alternative way to settle the score - an epic 11-round matchup of rock, paper, scissors. The 10th went to North Haven with a rock over scissors. Then it was tied. Then it was all down to this. And wow, a scissors cuts paper. No one saw that coming. Here's video of the moment.
