The Braves got off to a rough start, surrendering 9 runs in the 6th inning of the opener with Marysville, and rallying to within one run of tying things up in the top of the 7th, as they took the 15-14 loss.

Carson Bredemeier went 2-4 for the game, scoring 3 times and driving in 2 runs, with a double and a walk. Xavier Oldham finished 3-5, knocking in 2 RBIs and scoring 3 times. Ashton Rockey was 2-4 with a double, 2 walks and 4 runs scored.

The team finished with 8 errors, giving the Marysville squad extra outs and opportunities that they eventually capitalized on.
