An RBI in the top of the second inning gave the Pioneer baseball team a temporary lead over Division I opponent UW-Milwaukee.
Joe Klobukowski tripled to start the inning. Two at-bats later, Tyler Warner grounded to second baseman Cole Kraft who chose to get the out at first and surrender the RBI.
The Panthers scored twice in the bottom of the inning to take the lead. They scored one run in the third and eighth innings to secure a 4-1 lead.
The Pioneers best opportunity for more scoring came in the fourth inning when they stranded the bases loaded.
