Prague was guilty of six errors, leading to three unearned runs. NRC also gave up three unearned runs on three errors.

Prague had the only extra-base hits in the game on a Trip Davis triple and doubles by Brayden Davis and Kyler Kinslow. Davis was Prague’s only multiple hitter with two.

North Rock Creek leadoff hitter Nick Lake went 2-for-3 with two singles. He walked, scored and stole two bases.

Lake, who also hurled the first 4 2/3 innings, gave up four runs, five hits, struck out two and walked two.

Relief pitcher Tanner Davis surrendered one unearned run on one hit.

Cade Anderson, Prague’s starter, was touched for five runs (two unearned) on five hits. He registered eight strikeouts.
