Jared Fores threw two and a third and was saddled with the loss. Cam Bednar threw an inning and two thirds, while Brennon Covington threw the final inning. 

The Lopers (13-10, 6-3 MIAA) had three with three hits including Brandon Hernandez, Dallas Schramm and Peter Carlson. 

Balsamo started the game with a home run to left field, his third of the season. The Lions added two more runs in the inning on RBIs from Alvarez and Wheeler. 

UNK got a run back in the first, but RBIs from Balsamo and Phillips in the second had the Lions with a 5-1 lead going into the bottom of the second. 

The Lopers got within a run with a pair of runs in the third, but a homer from Phillips in the fourth had the Lions up 6-4.
