Next innings Mariners continued to keep the scoreboard ticking over with more hitting from Greg Symmans and Anthony Burgess, putting pressure on Panthers fielding creating errors.

New to the pitching duties Ben Campbell was doing a fine job not allowing Panthers to score. Panthers pitcher Paul Bojar stepped up his performance striking out two out of the next four batters.

Mariners didn’t stop getting bat to ball forcing more errors and bringing more runs across the plate.
