The Panthers scored their lone run in the last inning when Tyler Thomason reached on a fielder’s choice. He advanced to second on a single by John Edens and moved on to third when Danny Waller was hit by a pitch loading the bases. A walk to Cole Plyler scored Tyler from third but the next Panther batter grounded out to end the game. Cole Plyler had the only other hit for the Panthers. Wilson Hall scored three in the first; four in the third (which really put the game away); and four more in the seventh. Baron pitching dominated Panther hitters striking out eleven on the night.
