Chandler Wood (1 IP, 0R, 0H, 1K) earned a save with a scoreless seventh on the bump.

In the second game Saturday, GHC pitcher Eric Moore tossed a seven inning complete game. He scattered seven hits and one walk while striking out five.

The Chargers offense in Game 2 grabbed a 3-0 lead through the first four frames and then pulled away posting nine runs across the final three innings.

Ethan Anderson collected five hits in the doubleheader and had four RBIs. Parker Poteet finished the day with three doubles at the plate. Caden Smith contributed two hits including a double and three RBIs. Zayd Brannigan also had two hits and three RBIs. Ben Olson totaled a pair of hits including a solo home run and David Smith had a two hits in the second game. Conner Todaro (RBI) and Mitchell Walker (2 RBIs) added one hit apiece.
