In a game that lasted nearly 3ยฝ hours, Litchfield (2-0) got the non-conference win after coming back from an 8-1 deficit. Chris Sundmark, who went 4-for-4, scored all the way from first after Hutchinson tried to throw out Blayne Johnson on a sacrifice bunt to tie the game at 10-10 in the seventh.

Marcus Buschette led off the fifth inning for Litchfield with solo home run to left-center.
