After scoring another run in the fifth for a 9-1 lead, Liberty Ranch took advantage of four hits, four walks and a D’backs error in the top of the sixth to score seven runs. The game ended after six innings because of the 10-run mercy rule. Union Mine had five hits in the game; Mike Davis was 2-for-2 with a double. Nate Brown was also 2-for-2. LIberty Ranch had nine hits. The D’backs honored their five seniors on Senior Day; Sean Tow, Charles Simpson, Davis, Romero and Brian Smith.
