The Raiders scored two runs in the fourth to break a scoreless tie, and did so without a basehit.

Oxford 15, Deposit 13
OXFORD – Oxford built a big advantage after four innings, and hung on for its second win in as many days.
Jamie Smolcknop had an RBI single to start a six-run third, and a few opportunistic plays later, Eddie Grundner capped the uprising with a two-run single.
Deposit trailed by as many as seven runs, but closed to within two on the strength of a four-run seventh. “We kept battling, and that’s two days in a row where we were mentally tough,” said Oxford coach Chris Palmer. “It got dark at the end and it started to rain, but we held on for the win. We were opportunistic early in the game to put ourselves in position to win.”
Smolcknop had two hits, three RBI, and three runs scored. P.J. Hubman reached base safely in five trips to the plate finishing 2-for-2 with three runs.
