CHICO, Ca. – The Rogues struck first, when Blake Baumgartner (UC San Diego) singled up the middle to score Riley Kasper (Saddleback College) from second base in the first inning, but the Heat scored five runs in the seventh and eighth innings to put the game away.
Baumgartner made a number of terrific plays in the hot corner, including a diving grab on a ball hit down the line by Heat second baseman Andrew Meggs. With the tying run at third base, Baumgartner made the grab while on his belly, got up, and made the throw over the first in time to rob Meggs of an RBI.
Starting pitcher Robbie Ahlstrom (Chemeketa CC) danced around trouble all night before Heat right fielder Cole Lemmel tied the game with a solo home run in the fourth. Chico then took the lead when Meggs doubled down the left field line to score Brandon Stewart.
