The Pioneers would put two on the board in the third on back-to-back HR’s from Skip Talarek (Great Falls, VA) and Greg Stotser (Columbus, GA) giving TC a 3-1 lead.
In the seventh, both teams would trade a run once again as TC’s Matt Riggs (Dayton, TN) lifted a solo-HR to left while Catawba’s Mark Smith (Brown Summitt, NC) countered with a solo blast to center.
