The Rams trailed 1-0 in the bottom of the 1st on a solo home run by Kirk. Shelby played small ball and got that run back. Neil Yockey drew a lead-off walk and Andrew Hawkins singled. With two outs, Caleb Eloe hit an RBI single, 1-1.

In the 3rd the Rams took a 2-1 lead. Jake Keown drew another lead-off walk and Luke Hatfield singled Yockey walked with one out and Hawkins singled Keown home.

Eloe had held Pana in check except for that solo homer. He threw four Ks in four innings and had given up just two walks and a hit batter.

In the Ram 4th, McConnell walked with one out, Garrett Manship singled and Eloe walked. With the bases loaded Miller crushed the first pitch for a grand slam. Keown and Hatfield then walked and Standerfer singled Keown in and Hatfield scored on an error, 9-1.

Pana got a solo homer from Metzger in the 6th, but it was smacking an elephant with a fly swatter.

Leading 9-2, the Rams answered with a Hawkins lead-off home run. McConnell walked and Manship reached on an error. Tyler Hendryx walked. McConnell scored on a passed ball. With one out, Keown got the walk-off RBI-single for the 10-run win.
