The Slicers picked up another single run in the second inning. After Keli Hay lined out to center, Jax Land drew a walk. He moved to second on Brock Schultz’s bunt and scored on a solid hit up the middle by Kai Jones. LP led 2-0 after two innings.


After the Wolves cut the lead to 2-1 in the top of the third the Slicers picked up two in the bottom of the inning. Kade Flores doubled to left and scored on Anglin’s triple to right center. Anglin scored on a wild pitch. La Porte tacked on their fifth run in the fifth with the help of three seniors. Flores was hit by a pitch with one out and moved to second on a wild pitch. Anglin reached on an error with Flores moving to third. Samuelson picked up the RBI with a sacrifice fly to center.
