Only one Commodore, Cooper O’Brien, reached third base, on the Tigers’ only error, which came in the third inning. Ethan Bissonette poked both VUHS hits. His second single came to lead off the fifth inning, but the Tigers middle infield of Hale Hescock and Devon Kearns turned a double play to help keep the game scoreless.
MUHS then broke through in the bottom of the fifth off Wormer. Cameron walked and Skyeler Devlin singled, and after a sacrifice bunt both scored on Jack Waterman’s long double.

Wormer threw five-plus innings, allowing three runs, four hits and four walks as VUHS dropped to 3-9.
