Sean Geoghegan got the start for the White team. He began the game strong with two consecutive strike outs and a harmless groundout to third. But in the second he gave up four runs on six hits as the Green team got on the board first.

Green acted as the home team and Jason Harris got the start. He rolled through the first two innings unscathed. He looked great until the third - where he gave up three doubles and two runs. The inning started with a double to center by Elseser, a simple ground out to short stop that advanced the runner and two consecutive RBI doubles by Roland and Roberts.

Green took the lead in the top of the second and never looked back. The most trouble the Green got into all day was when the White team loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the seventh. After that, the White team was only able to drive in one run with a ground-out to third as the next guy grounded out to shortstop. With excellent defense, the Green team was able to overcome two bases-loaded opportunities for the White team and hold on for the win.

Hunter May got the start for the home Green team. He started off the game giving up 2 runs in the first inning on 4 hits and a walk, three of the hits being doubles. After the first, May was able to finish his start going 4 2/3 innings and not allowing anymore runs.

The score was 4-2 until the fourth, when Brad Elwood hit a monster three-run home that struck the scoreboard making it 7-2. The White team tried to make a comeback in the top of the seventh, picking up two runs but couldn't finish the rally as J.J. Elseser was called out trying to stretch a single into double. The game was clean with no errors on either side. Even though they lost, the White team was able to out-hit the Green team 14-9.

"We've got a good culture with our program," said Hibbs. "We need to play well. A lot of good things are happening. It's a good time to be a 49er employee, 49er student and 49er fan."
