Ryan Bostian, who had reached on a single, scored on a single from Caleb Shore. Maverick Miles, who followed Bostian’s hit with a single of his own, came home on Ivan Corriher’s sacrifice fly off Randolph starter Tyler McSwain.South took a 1-0 lead in the second inning, when Walker Snow scored on an RBI double by Brett Huffman. Huffman went to third on an error.
