Laurel Hill got a run back in the bottom of the first. Chase Locke singled and later scored on a Ben Perez hit for the first Hobo run.

The Tigers scored three more runs on three hits and a walk by Davis in the second inning to go up 13-1.

Davis was touched for 12 hits, some of which were misplayed balls, while striking out four Tiger batters and giving up the one walk in the second inning.

Max Smith took the mound for the Hoboes in the third inning and held Malone to a third-inning unearned run the rest of the way.

Smith didn’t allow a hit in three innings of work. He did give up four walks and he struck out two.

Laurel Hill picked up two runs in the bottom of the fifth as Tiger relief pitcher  Antwoin Johnson struggled to find the strike zone.

Johnson walked Locke to lead off the inning and then hit Davis with a pitch. Garret King drew a one-out walk to load the bases.
