The second game of the twin bill held a stark difference in identity. This time, Kokomo started the scoring off with five unanswered runs featuring a four-spot in the fifth. 

Kenosha fought back with three of their own in the final frame, but it wasn’t enough, as the boys from Indiana prevailed 5-3 to complete the sweep.

Michael Malone (2-1) of DePauw University tossed six innings of three-run ball with five strikeouts for the win, while Reed Gannon (1-2), the Kentucky southpaw, took the loss after allowing one run across four frames with three strikeouts.

Kingfish utility talent Mason Morris (Ole Miss) shined bright all day and night at the plate. He went 3-for-7 with two runs scored, a double, a triple and four RBI across both games.

Jackrabbits outfielder Camden Hayslip (Alabama) put on an absolute show on offense. Hayslip went 4-for-7 with a home run and five RBI on the day.
