In the third, Jefferson took a 3-2 lead when Logan Johnson walked and eventually scored on a fielder’s choice. The scoring continued when J.P. Jones doubled in Cory Mangold and Jamie Richard hit a two-run home run.

Tanner Everton pitched the first five innings for the win, allowing five hits and two walks while striking our four. Chris Payne closed it out with two innings of relief.
