attempts to score off a hit from JJ Loker but gets caught in a pickle between third and home
plate and is unable to get past the Shockers defense.

scoring off a strong single with bases loaded by Harrison Madagan. Delavergne then adds a
home run with a runner on first and third.

inning with a 7 - 2 advantage over the Blue Sox.
