The Travelers jumped out to an early lead in the win, leading 6-2 through two innings before the Black Sox took a short-lived 7-6 lead in the third.
Kris Kerr led the offensive attack for the Black Sox with a single, three walks and also reached base after being hit by a pitch. Jordan Pine doubled twice and also singles while Dana Lesage singled twice. Scott Morphet singled and walked as well for the Black Sox in the loss.
Tyler Kirkland reached base three times for the Travelers with a pair of walks and a double. Lucas Krupa tripled and doubled in the win for E.U.P.
