Landry Alligood pitched two innings, giving up one run on two hits and striking out two. Sonny Brandwood earned the save with one hitless, scoreless inning.

Eason led off the bottom of the first with a single, followed by Yadon’s single. Hebert then cleared the bases with a triple and scored on sacrifice fly by Lane Hutchinson.
In the fourth inning, Brayden Caskey led off with a single, stole second and scored on a single by Yadon.
