Weiskopff went 4-4 including his second home run of the year with three RBI’s to lead the offense. Chris Coleman, Dan Chevalier and Tressler all went 2-4.
In the nightcap, Woodworth’s three-run home run in the bottom of the third broke up a 3-3 tie and Mansfield would score seven runs on eight hits in the fourth, including home runs by Kevin Miller and Jon Taddeo to put the game out of reach.
Mike Hartz, Brian Milliman, Tressler, Woodworth, Glen Jenkins and Taddeo all had three hits each for Mansfield with Milliman also hitting a two-run home run in the first. Shane Ryan started and took the win scattering eight hits and striking out four over four innings.
