Garrett Kuns had two hits for the Tigers on the day, a single and a double, while driving in a run and stealing a base. Ryan Talbott and Mitch Dyer both had doubles and scored a run and Dyer collected two RBI. Aaron Barnhart and Devin Baughn would notch singles on the day and Chase Castline had a single, a run and an RBI. Joey Jessie and Ryan Utz would also score runs for Galion in the loss.
