But, Penepacker had control issues as he walked three and gave up a hit. Finally, Jaxson Pupo came in and settled things down with two quick outs.
Strodes Mills picked up a run in the first inning when Cole Schlegel scored on a wild pitch.
But, it was in the second that Strodes took command of the game, scoring five runs off five hits. Schlegel and Penepacker each had two-run singles and Pupo had the fifth RBI on a bases loaded walk.
