He got all the runs he needed in the bottom of the first when Circus scored two runs. Circus added two more in the third before breaking things open with a six-run fifth inning. They tacked on two more in the sixth for the final margin of difference.

Tyler Newman had three hits to pace Circus, which finished with a dozen hits as a team. Kelly Coates and Ryan Ellingson each contributed two hits and drove in a pair.
