A pair of two-run singles from Newsome’s Sawyer Smith and Alex Philpott each singled in a pair as the Wolves put things out of reach in a morning visit to Robinson. Kelsen Johnson keyed the offense early with a two-run homer to center and a two-run double to right in his four-RBI game. Chase Havener earned the win with 3 2/3 innings and five strikeouts. Robinson tried to rally late with a Robert Chatfield RBI single in the seventh, and loaded the bases getting one more on a walk drawn by Alex Warner, but Brandon Burgess closed the door getting the final out and picking up a save for the Wolves. Ben Maskin and Ben Kim (double) each drove in a run for the Knights.
