Steinbrenner junior Brayden Heidel pitched his team to victory and improved to 7-1 on the season, with six innings of work, allowing one unearned run on just three hits and a walk, with five strikeouts. The Warriors offense took little time to get going against Brooks DeBartolo as an RBI single by Tommy Malouf (3-for-4 with two doubles, three runs and two RBI) and a two-run single by Adam Fisher keyed a four-run head start in the first. Junior Donovan Garcia added a two-run home run the next inning, and Ryan Lowder scored three times in the win.
