In game two, Delgado opened the scoring three in the bottom of the first on a double by Lyall Ball. Brandon Duhon doubled in the fourth, driving in Gabe Gravois, and also scoring on back-to-back errors to touch all four bases in the same play to expand Delgado’s lead to 5-0.
In the top of the seventh, St. Joseph batted around to post six runs and take a 6-5 lead over the Dolphins following four walks, two hit batters, and three singles. Duhon singled in the bottom frame and advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Justin Ory before Delgado’s rally fell short in St. Joseph’s 6-5 win.
