But Folsom took advantage of seven walks, two hit batters and two fielder’s choices to post a 15-5 mercy rule-shortened win.
After Folsom jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first inning, Gold Rush responded back in the top of the second. Beau Bray doubled to left field, and moved to third base when teammate Miles Mitchell singled to centerfield. Then Cameron Post and Skie Marquez produced back-to-back singles. Post’s single scored Bray and Mitchell to trim the lead to 7-2.
Folsom added three more runs in the top of the second inning for a 10-2 lead. In the top of the third frame, Folsom scored two more runs for a 12-2 lead. But Gold Rush continued to rally in the bottom of the inning with one out. Repass (2-for-3, RBI) doubled to left field, and scored on Matthew Meglor’s single, also to left field for a 12-3 score.
Four consecutive singles in the bottom of the fourth inning gave Gold Rush momentum. Mason Schmeeckle, Bradley Morris, Severt, Repass and Bray cranked out the hits, as Schmeeckle and Morris scored on Repass and Bray’s hits.
Schmeeckle, Severt, Repass, Mitchell, Bray and Post were 2-for-3 each for Gold Rush. Morris and Marquez had a hit each in the game.
