John Birong led off the four-run  second inning with a  single and advanced to third on a double by Jaxon Rinkes. Brody Wade was hit by a pitch to load the bases and brought Isaac Moore to the plate. 

Moore’s single plated two runs before Parker Varney collected an RBI with a single and Cadyen Smith’s single scored Moore for the fourth run of the inning. 

The winners batted around in the fourth inning. 

Landon James and Birong were hit by pitches to begin the fourth inning. After Hayden Jenkins hit a fly ball to left field for the first out of the inning, Rinkes walked to load the bases. Wade smacked a double to left field to score James and Birong followed by a double off the bat of Moore that scored Rinkes. 

Varney drew a walk to load the bases once again. Smith hit a single to plate two runners. James connected with a pitch for a single to right field to score the sixth run of the inning.

Moore went three-for-four at the plate with three RBIs and scored three runs, Smith went two-for-three with three RBIs. Rinkes contributed a double as Wade, Varney, Rininger, James and Jenkins all had singles.
