    Blake Vail and Bryan Wade led the Frontenac hit parade, each collecting three hits. Vail went 3-for-4 with four RBI (a double and a triple among his three hits) and Wade 3-3 with two RBI. Brett Macary went 2-4 with three RBI. Standlee, Bryce Burdette and Blake Barto each added RBI.
    Macary earned the win after relieving Edge in the second, despite allowing three runs on four hits over two innings pitched.
