Crestline responded in the top of the second inning. Trevor Shade hit a ball to center field, bringing in a run. Blake Guiler ripped a ball to center field. While Northmor made a nice play on it, a run was able to score on the tag-up.
Northmor added three more runs in the third inning. Andrew Armrose hit a bases-clearing double to extend the Golden Knights’ lead. Mathew Kearns then singled to score Armrose.
Armrose added another run on an RBI groundout in the fourth inning. Then, Whited singled to third base, bringing in another run. Max Lower reached on an error and a run came in on the same play to score Northmor’s 14th run.
