In his first Lake Monsters outing of the season, the Williston native allowed one run on four hits with a walk and two strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings.
Vermont scored single runs in the first, fourth and fifth innings, while plating a pair of runs in both the second and seventh. Max Gebauer (Franklin Pierce) had an RBI triple in the second inning and Logan Keller (Navy) an RBI double in the fourth.
