In the second inning Casper took a 5-2 lead over the Owlz. A wild pitch from Tyler Kehrer of the Owlz got it all started bringing in one Casper runner. Then a home run hit by Casper player Jared Clark brought them to the lead.
Things didn’t heat up again till the bottom of the sixth inning. The first three batters of the inning for the Owlz all got base hits making the bases loaded. Richard Cates then got a good hit bringing in two of the Owlz runners, bringing Orem within one run of Casper.
