In the second game, Stalnaker smacked a double and drilled a pair of home runs, while knocking in three runs. But that wasn’t enough, as Donahue scored 16 runs to win a mercy-rule shortened game, 16-6.
Dalton Kuhn took the loss from the mound. He struck out three and walked four, while Stalnaker came in relief to strike out one and walk five.
Stalnaker led the way with a pair of singles and a double, while plating four runs to raise his batting average to .444 for the season. Phillips added a two-run single.
