Klein reached safely on a single in the sixth inning, advanced on a groundout, and scored on a single by Jobee Boone for the Dolphins’ third and final run en route to Baton Rouge’s win.
Cory Cook suffered the loss with Kaile Levatino pitching the final 3.2 innings in relief.
Delgado’s offense started Game 2 with a five run, four hit first inning. Brayden Caskey opened the game with a double before scoring on Brayden Jobert’s two run homerun. Ethan Lege singled and Stephen Klein walked before scoring on Brennan Lambert’s home run to give Delgado the early 5-0 lead.
In the third, Chris Collet walked and scored on Mark Johnston’s triple before Nick Lorio tripled to score Johnston. Lorio scored on a single by Brayden Caskey for Delgado’s eighth run.
In the fourth, Ethan Lege reached on a double and Stephen Klein singled before the two runners scored on a single by Jobee Boone before the threat ended with bases loaded. Baton Rouge plated four runs in the fifth, two off of Will Veillon’s home run.
The Bears added a solo run in the eight on a sacrifice fly before Carson Lore retired the threat to seal Delgado’s 10-5 win and earn the save in relief of starter Ian Landreneau.
Landreneau pitched six innings and struck out seven to earn the win on the mound.
