Austen Daliet (New Orleans, Louisiana) would bring in the first run of the game for the Lakers when he would single into left center to bring home Pavon. Marcus Pronay (Innisfil, Ontario) would hit a ball to short to score Eskens from third and Spencer Keane (Palm Springs, California) would hit a sac fly to left field to score Brackin and make it 4-1 Lakers.
