Tyler Faulkner ended the game in the seventh by knocking a base hit to left field with two outs. Zac Gwyn and Andy Pauley were on base after singles, and all three Bears came home when Montcalm’s outfielder misplayed Faulkner’s hit for a three-base error.

Gwyn batted 2 for 4 and every other Bland County starter had a hit, plus one player off the Bears’ bench.

For the Generals, Travis Poynter was 2 for 4 and Shane Presley and Craig Casto were each 2 for 3.
