Nate O’Hara had an RBI sacrifice fly and Chris Cole added an RBI double in the fourth. Tim French led G-MU’s batters with a 2-for-3 day with one RBI and two runs.
“We were getting guys on base early in the game, but never took advantage,” said G-MU coach Rick Parsons. “We haven’t been getting the timely hits, but we got those in the fourth and fifth innings today.”

Otselic Valley 5, Madison 4 (10 innings)
MADISON – Otselic Valley outlasted Madison in 10 innings as Greg DeRochie’s double – his only hit of the game – scored Waturu Sakamoto with the winning run.
OV senior pitcher Trevor Marston locked down the Madison batting lineup from the moment he stepped on the bump. Marston pitched five innings of no-hit relief for the win striking out 10 and walking none. “It was not our best game on the base paths and we made some mental errors, but we grouped together and put a bat on the ball when it counted,” said Vikings coach Jacob Preston.
Jon Liuzzo had two RBI for the Vikes (2-2), and Travis Sheldon along with Sakamoto had two hits apiece and one RBI.
