Quinn Martz led off with a base hit up the middle. SS/W center fielder Trevor Quast threw to 1st and Martz barely beat the strong throw. Martz stole 2nd and, with one out, Turner Pullen singled and drove Martz home, 1-0.

SS/W starter Dalton Armes began having control problems. Tylr Gottfriedt and Brett Spears walked and Cade Watson was hit by a pitch forcing in a run, 2-0. Daythan Summer walked and forced in another run, 3-0. Spears tried to take home on a passed ball and the catcher beat him to the plate for the 3rd out.

Christian Kessler led off the Comet 2nd off with a hit. Isaac Kramer walked. The next batter hit to Mason Cameron at 2nd and he started a 4-6-3 double play that Martz turned at 2nd and Watson caught at 1st. Howell rang up the next batter on three pitches.

In the Ram 2ndMartz got a 1-out bloop hit to right field. Cameron hit to the 2nd baseman for a possible double play, but he bobbled it. Everyone was safe.

Armes had technical problems called out of the blue. He was called on a balk and the runners moved up to 2nd and 3rd. He was called on it again and Martz scored and Cameron went to 3rd, 4-0. Pullen grounded out, but Cameron scored, 5-0
