Guerrero walked five Sandcrab batters in the first two innings as Port Lavaca scored two runs.

The Tigers went ahead in the fifth inning as Jonathan Parker hit a triple and scored on Micah Clements’ RBI single. Micah Clements came around to score on Silva’s double. In the sixth inning, Cole Allen came up with a double to start the inning. Marcus Greer, the courtesy runner for Allen, came around to score on a passed ball and a wild pitch.

Leading the Tiger batters in the contest were Parker with a triple, a single, and 1 run scored; Micah Clements, two singles, one RBI, and 1 run scored; Silva, a double, two RBIs, and reached base twice on errors; Pollok, a single and 1 run scored; Allen, a double; Drew Clements, a single and a walk; Sam Bryant reached base on an error; and Greer scored 1 run.
