“It was a situation with [Justin Pacchioli] on third with less than two outs. I was trying to lift something to the outfield,” said Massey. “I was expecting something soft and away in that moment and he left it right over and I got it up.”

The Patriots extended the lead in the bottom of the sixth inning on an RBI double by Mike Fransoso and an RBI single by Pacchioli that made the score 5-0.

The Road Warriors got their lone run on an RBI single by Alfredo Silverio in the top of the seventh inning.

Duane Below (5-2) picked up the win, allowing a run on six hits and six strikeouts in seven innings pitched. Michael Lee (1-4) suffered the loss, allowing five earned runs on nine hits and six strikeouts in 5.2 innings pitched.
