Bo Franklin then gave the Pirates its first lead, 8-7, of the game with a single that brought home another run.

Logan Wheeler had RBI double in the fifth and Garrett Parson manufactured a run in the fourth. Parson reached first on a fielder’s choice, stole two bases and scored from third on a passed ball.

Gentry led 4-0 in the first, but Cedarville answered with a Fincher RBI double and two runs were scored on a passed ball.
