Jeremy Forbus went seven innings for VSU to earn the win, giving up the only three hits by the Jags. He struck out six and walked two. Will Thompson allowed two hits and struck out four in the final two innings.
A two-run double by the Blazers’ Shawn Keill sparked a five-run rally in the third inning. They plated two runs in the fifth and sixth innings and closed out the game in the ninth with another three runs.
