In the bottom of the fifth inning, Casey Chenoweth hit a two-run home run to give the Diamond Hoppers a 2-1 lead. After Esteban Gomez reached on a single, Jeremy Scott doubled to right field, and a sacrifice bunt from Cyle Figueroa made it a 3-1 ballgame.
Joe Moroney followed with an RBI single to make it 4-1.
“It could still be 1-0 right now with the suspended game,” Diamond Hoppers Manager Paul Noce said.
