Sophomore Gage Galigher pitched a complete game victory for the Rockets striking out four and walking two while scattering six hits. Galigher also paced the hitting attack with three solid singles.
With two outs and nobody on in the bottom of the fifth inning, Brett Putnam worked a walk and promptly stole second base. Ethan Myers then delivered Putnam with an RBI single to cut the deficit to 2-1. Garson Imes then walked and stole second base bringing Braylen Novak to the plate.
