Panthers trample Cardinals

If it weren’t for a balk that scored Jett Jarvis, Raul Gonzalez would’ve had a grand slam during the big fifth inning. The Panthers also added two runs in the first, third and fourth innings. In the third inning Liam Wilson hit a two-run shot.

Bryan Rivera and Luis Bernardo led the Cardinals offence with home runs.

Jacob Douglas got the win on the mound for the Cardinals. He struck out five, and gave up two runs on five hits. Logan Walters was pegged with the loss.
