The starting pitcher for Grayson county retired five Cougars on strikeouts.

Neither team could get a runner in to score until the top of the fifth. Logan County put up two points in the inning. Austin Rayno, Dylan Penick, and Koby Wall each had RBIs for the Cougars in the game. The other two points that Logan County scored were added in the sixth. Grayson county managed an RBI single in the bottom of the sixth, but it wasn’t enough offense for the home team.

Bradley Taylor had two singles in the contest. Michael Riley, Austin Rayno, Dylan Penick, and Third Bell had one single each. The Cougars had three stolen bases against the Grayson County pitchers and catcher. Taylor, Penick, and Rayno each swiped a free bag.
