With the bats, Blake Vice nearly hit a home run that bounced off the left field wall and he got a double. Dawson Carpenter also doubled right down the third base line. Matthew Singleton beat out an infield ground ball.

Two Wildcats runs scored from third base when Lobo pitching delivered 2 wild pitches that got away from the catcher. A third run was the result of a well executed double steal that allowed Singleton to steal home.
