Behind solid performances by four different pitchers Winner came away with the victory.
Kameron Meiners started on the mound and struck out three 3 batters in two innings. He was followed by Evan Farner, Aaron Gilchrist and Jacob Beckers, all who combined to shutout Mission while allowing just one hit.
At the plate, Winner was led by Joren Bruun who went 2-2 with 2 walks and an inside the park home run. Colby Kaiser drove in two runs in the second inning with a double that bounced over the third baseman’s head.
