reached 1st after being hit by a pitch and advanced to second as

two outs, Mitchell drew a base on balls to plate Rabion for run
number two. Bynum scored the third run of the inning on a base
hit by Dickens.
The Tide scored two more times in the fourth when Bynum and
Dunn cross the plate on back to back hits by Trexler and Mixon.
