Bryce B, Preston E, Nick R, and Monaco had the rest of the hits in Game 1.

In game 2 Spencer H went the distance on the mound striking out 8 Tigers and allowing just 4 hits to get the win. The Kangaroo offense exploded for 14 hits being led by Joey M and Bryce B with 3 hits a piece. Mason Z and Preston E added 2 hits each. Spencer H and Parker B also key RBI singles in the ball game.
