"We didn't have a lot of pitching to go with, and Blake did well," Allison said. "He got to 90 pitches and (Tyler) stepped in there and got the ball over the plate. That's all you can ask for from someone who's really your bullpen and backup catcher."
Woosley got the last out of the sixth and gave up three runs on three hits in the seventh. Hunter Omohundro rounded out his team's scoring with a two-run dinger with one out in the inning.
The Cardinals managed just three hits off Woodford starter Matt Smith in the first four innings. Clark scored its first two runs on a stolen base and another on a wild pitch, before Jordan Barker connected on a two-run home run - his 10th of the season - in the fifth inning.
Barker became the first player in Allison's tenure to hit 10 or more home runs in a single season.
Barker said he hasn't given the home run count much thought and just tries to put the ball in play each time.
"If you start thinking about it, then you really start trying to hit home runs," he said. "I just try to hit line drives every time. I don't try to total up how many home runs I have, because you'll get the big head."
In the seventh, Clark loaded the bases on three straight walks by Woodford reliever Jordan Goins. Robert Bell highlighted the inning with a single that scored a pair of runs.
The Yellowjackets got out of the inning when Patrick Bailey grounded into a 6-4-3 double play and a groundout to short by Tyler Duncan.
"We showed a lot of heart," Barker said. "Our young guys stepped up."
Both teams combined for 19 hits and a pair of home runs and three double plays. Clark turned one of the 6-4-3 variety in the fourth inning.
Jim Mabe led the Cards with three hits, followed by Evan Bennett with two.
