Brian Savage doubled to left field and scored on a fielder’s choice in the bottom of the fifth to give Union County its final run of the game.
Khadarius Means threw three innings of shutout baseball before being relieved by Trey Bevis in the fourth. Means struck out three, walked two and didn’t allow a hit during his time on the mound. Bevis gave up just one hit and allowed one run with two walks and two strikeouts.
