The Eagles came into bat, but couldn’t get anything going. Cody Kelley got on base with a single to right field  and Paul Edgar was hit by a pitch, but both were left stranded.

The Eagles hit the field still trailing by two, but managed to hold off the Jacks. Third baseman Griffin Courson threw a runner out at first and Cody Kelley caught two in left field.

Crossett came in to bat, but went three up three down as well.

In the top of the third, the Eagles held the Jacks again.

Cooper Williams and Kelley both caught flies in the outfield and Courson threw to Trent Pullin on first for another out.

In the bottom of the third, Bennett Holt hit a line shot to center, but there was already two outs on the board and Holt was left stranded on base.

In the top of the fourth, all four Warren batters who stepped up to the plate got a hit, but the Eagles still kept them from scoring.

Edgar caught an out in right,  and  Hopper threw two out at first from the mound leaving two runners stranded.

The Eagles came into bat, but still didn’t get any runs across.

The Jacks didn’t score again until the top of the sixth.

There were two runners on base and only one out on the board when a Jack hit a hard grounder to Courson on third. Courson was able to get the batter out at first, but a runner managed to get around to home plate giving the Lumberjacks three runs total. Courson grabbed another grounder for the third out and the Eagles came into bat, but went three up three down.

The Jacks scored another run in the top of the seventh making the score 4-0.

The Eagles finally got one run across in the bottom of the seventh. Carson McDonald was hit by a pitch and took first base and Courson went in for him as  a courtesy runner.

Courson moved around to second with a single by Hall. A walk loaded the bases, but with three outs on the board the Eagles needed to rally.

Holt hit a shot to center field and knocked Courson in, but Kelley was thrown out advancing to second making the final score 4-1.
