The Cardinals did all their damage in the opening inning going up 7-0 after a series off walks, pass balls, and fielders choice’s that quickly put up five runs that led to the early exit of Yona’s Mark Parks for Robby Rabago.

An error in the infield scored two more runs for the Cardinals blowing the game wide open.

The Red Hawks picked up their first run midway through the 3rd inning after an RBI from Jesse Fernandez. They scored their second run off a fielders choice in the 4th inn in, but still could not establish consistent hitting.
