Lance Pierces Geneva With Help of Pioneers, Win 3-1
The Red Wings took advantage of an Elmira error early on to take a one run lead in the second.
The Pioneers quickly responded thanks to back to back RBI singles by Troy Dixon (Samford) and Rob Perteet (Samford). The Pioneers would lead 2-1 at the end of the third.
Ty Denzer (Kansas) would lead off with a walk at the bottom of the fifth. Denzer would then take advantage of a couple of Red Wing errors to make it home to bring the score 3-1.
After that it was all defense and solid pitching that shut down the Red Wings for the rest of the game.
