Pruett going 2-4 with 3 RBI’s, 1 SB and Godbee 3-4 2 RBI’s, 1 R, 1 SB paced the Predator attack. Senior Kenneth Miller was good on the mound providing 5.1 innings of solid baseball allowing only 3 hits striking out 3. Junior Conner Sherlock slammed the door on the Panthers pitching the final 1.2 perfect innings striking out 2.
