Heading to the bottom of the 5th, with a storm on its way, the Battlers took advantage of 4 walks and 2 errors as they put up nine runs in the inning.  Just as soon as the inning ended, the rains came forcing a 1 hour and 12 minute rain delay.  

After play resumed GSC showed some life as the scored three runs in the top of 6th

A-B answered right back with four runs of their own in the bottom half of the 6th and quieted any thoughts of a comeback.

Junior College transfer Sean Collette led the way at the plate going 3 for 4 with 3 2B’s, 3 runs scored and six RBI’s.  David Bryan, Mitch Roy and Brandon Quay each drove in a pair of runs.
