Cody Jones (Univeristy of Indianapolis) started on the bump for the Trops and made quick work of the Bomb Squad picking up 7 strikeouts.
The scoring came for the Trops in the top of the fourth with an explosion of 8 runs. Bradley White (South Suburban) gets aboard with a walk, followed by Austin Reed (University of Alabama Hunstville) getting hit by a pitch. A single from Kenneth Sugi (Kaskaskia Community College) loads the bases followed by back-to-back walks from Kyle Van Liere (Butler) & Brett Freiberg (Rock Valley College) scores some more. Chase Mason then singles to score two, followed by singles from Bradley White & Seth Seniour (Olney Cental), the Trops dominate the fourth inning making the score 8-2.
In the sixth, the Trops pick up an insurance run on a double from Chase Mason who helps his own cause by scoring.
