With one out and bases loaded in the second A.J. Barron beaned a Milton batter to score their first run of the game. They followed up with a sacrifice to score one more and a double to bring in two runs.
Teddy Robertson bunted down the third base line to lead off the fourth with a single and Logan Franklin doubled to left field to move Robertson to third. Cole Payne grounded out to single to bring in Robertson for Shawnee’s only other run of the game.
Taylor was 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI and Franklin was 1-for-3.
