  • After Tyler Womack (Moline, Ill./Moline) reached on an error to open the bottom of the sixth and moved to third on a double from Cacey O’Brien (Moline, Ill./Moline), Dominguez knocked them in with a single to center for the game’s first runs.
  • Morris scored once in the seventh before Jack Gray (Burlington, Iowa/Notre Dame) wriggled out of a bases-loaded jam with a strikeout to close out the victory for the Chargers (4-3), who improved to 3-2 on their trip to the coast.

Meyer retired 13 of the final 15 batters he faced before turning things over to Gray, who tossed the final two innings to get the win in relief.
