But not for nothing, Silas would be rewarded with an RBI. Going into the bottom of the fifth inning, with a score of 13-4, Kannon Mayer would open with a strikeout. Later on he would be replaced by Sophia Eaton, who after a rocky start got in her grove and managed to quickly strikeout the final two batters ending the game 13-8, Pizza 4 U's favor.
