Sophomore Sam Hunter (Ashland, Ky.) got the win in game one for the White Team coached by assistant coach Brian Karlet. Trailing the Green Team 3-0 entering the sixth inning, Karlet's squad scored four in the sixth to take a 4-3 lead that held until the game went final. A two-RBI single from freshman Spencer Iacovone in the sixth was what put the White Team on top in game one.
In game two, senior Kyle Kessler (Matthews, N.C.) got the win for the White to give his team a 2-0 series lead over coach Jeff Waggoner's Green Team.
Junior righty Clint Wilson went 4.0 innings while allowing no runs and striking out three in game three en route to a win for the Green Team. Wilson's victory pulled the Green within one of the white after the weekend concluded.
Offensive standouts from the weekend included junior Eric Escobedo (Troup, Ga.) who collected two RBI, along with sophomore Aaron Bossi (St. Louis, Mo.) who brought in two runs of his own. Sophomore Matt Reed drove in four runs over the three-game weekend. Iacovone and junior Sergio Leon (Miami, Fla.) each went yard once for the White Team on the weekend.
