The Panthers scored two runs in the bottom of the first on a pair of Falcon errors. The third run came on Joe Steinhardt’s single.

The Panthers added two runs in the second to go up 5-0. Isaac Fintak doubled and scored on Jake Steinhardt’s single. Steinhardt stole second and third. On his steal of third the catcher made an errant throw which brought home Steinhardt.

In the fifth, PHS added two runs to make it 7-1. Jake Steinhardt walked, stole second and scored on Taylor Struve’s base hit. Struve stole second and later came home on a wild pitch.

The Panthers tacked on another run in the sixth when Ben Picard’s single drove in Matt Pohl.

PHS banged out nine hits, led by Jake Steinhardt, Joe Steinhardt and Fintak with two each. The Panthers didn’t have anyone with multiple RBIs.

Jake Steinhardt paced PHS in stolen bases with four and runs, three. Pohl and Struve scored two runs apiece. Struve also stole two bases.

Ross Krist and JT Petrie led Falls in hits with two each. The Falcons scored their run in the fourth on Petrie’s single which knocked in Jacoby Endreas who had singled and moved to second on a passed ball.

“We had good intensity and we pressured Falls early [with aggressive baserunning and bunting]. We grabbed the mo- mentum early and built on it,” said Cain.

“We were aggressive on the bases and had good discipline at the plate. Our speed showed.”

PHS batters didn’t have any strikeouts.

The losing pitcher was Petrie who started and went four innings. He gave up five runs (two earned) on six hits with three walks and zero strikeouts.

Falls committed four errors to only one for PHS.
