Watertown put down only three hits in game two in a 5-2 loss. Jack Heesch had one hit and one RBI while Andrew Czech and Bryce Hult each had one hit. Jerod Cyrus threw four and third innings on the hill allowing five hits, five runs, walking five while fanning nine. Czech and Ryan Roby each saw time on the mound in relief.

Coach Ryan Neale says hits were hard to come by last night:
