The game was blown open in the bottom of the sixth inning when the Tritons scored four runs with the help of first year Tyler Plantier. Plantier had a clutch two out double to center field driving in three runs, which brought the score to 4-0.

In the top of the seventh, senior right fielder Connor Huesers tripled to left center and later scored when junior Jeff Ortega grounded out to second, bringing ‘Cats within three.

The Wildcats made quick work of the Tritons in the bottom of the seventh with three strikeouts. Junior second baseman Andrew Carrillo started off the inning with a double to right field.

He was drove in by senior left fielder Danny Miller off of a sac fly, which brought the score to 4-2.

Heading into the top of the ninth the the ‘Cats were shut down and extended the losing streak to four.
