Jonathan Thompson turned in a solid outing out of the bullpen with four and two thirds innings pitched. Thompson allowed two runs on six hits with one walk and three strikeouts.

The Hawks trained 9-0 through three innings when they scored two runs in the fourth. The first of those runs scored when Matt Renner drew a bases-loaded walk that scored Hunter Cottrell and then the second run scored when Kevin Smith hit a line-drive to center field that scored Thompson.

UHS added two more runs in the fifth when Thompson doubled to centerfield that scored Max Kitzmiller and Aaron Forbes.

University managed seven hits in the game with Thompson leading the way with two, Forbes added a double while Cottrell, Clay Maholic, Renner and Kevin Smith each had one single.
