The ‘Cavs took a six-run lead on junior Carrington Aaron’s run-scoring single to right in the fourth and Moore pushed Chatham’s cushion to nine with his three-run dinger to center. Van Pelt rounded out the scoring for the Cavaliers when he smacked a two-run shot to left that scored Cornell and made it an 11–0 contest.
