South Tahoe starter Cary White capitalized, allowing just one hit through the first three frames while collecting five strikeouts. Alan McDermott came on in relief and gave up North Tahoe’s lone run on a pair of singles in the fifth. He also finished with five Ks.

Abravanel supplied the local’s other two runs in the third frame, belting a two-run bomb which plated McDermott. Fiori finished a homer short of the cycle, while Jake Summers singled. Garrett McIntyre and Ryan Kraw each scored twice.
