Middle Creek starter, Jake Benechet carried a no hitter into the bottom of the 4th but the Caps rallied for 6 runs in the 4th  as he lost the strike zone walking Saunders, Eller and White loading the bases with no outs. A Middle Creek error by the 3rd baseman on Tanner Parkers grounder scored the first Capitals run. Another walk, a 2 RBI single by Max Magallanes and a 2 RBI double by red hot Will Cooper concluded the 6 run 4th.

Joe Bialkowski took control of the mound in the 5th relieving Wilson White who pitched the 4th surrendering 2 unearned runs. White stalled the Middle Creek hitting attack surrendering only  one hit with two strikeouts. Bialkowski picked up where White left off surrendering one earned run off one hit while striking out two.

Middle Creek ran out their 3rd pitcher of the game to start the bottom of the 5th and the Caps wasted no time getting the bats heated up again. Eller led off with a single and moved over to third on a double by Ziquine Hopkins and Tanner Parker picked up a RBI with a single. With runners on third and second, Blue suspended the game due to darkness. The teams will finish this game prior to the scheduled away game with Middle Creek on April 11.

See you tomorrow at East Wake for the Caps next game!
