Down East scored five runs and then got rained out in the second inning. That sucks.

Hickory had Cole Ragans get the start, and he threw four scoreless before getting in trouble in the fifth and getting pulled. His final line was 2 runs in 4.1 IP with 4 hits, 3 walks and 6 Ks. Mark Parker said Ragans started the game off very strong but started struggling with his command by the fourth, then got knocked out in the fifth.

Jonthan Ornelas had a single and a double, Frainyer Chavez had a double, and Kellen Strahm had two hits.
