Then German Sepulvada crushed one to left field…

Liam Hicks hit his first of two home runs on the day in the fifth to provide some insurance…

Matt McGilray threw five innings for the win. He gave up three hits, only one earned run, struck our four and walked only one. In game two MAC broke open a 1-1 tie with five in the fifth. Hicks and Feuerstake hit back to back homers in the inning, the 10th for Hicks and the 7th for Feuerstake which puts them 2nd and 4th in the country. Assistant coach Jordan Thompson says he’ll put that duo up against anyone in the country.
