In the fourth frame, a walk and two consecutive bunts got a pair of runners into scoring position for designated hitter Taylor Richardson. One of the bunts was placed perfectly down the third base line by Ben Sanderson for the first Petaluma hit of the afternoon.

Richardson then rifled a line drive that skipped in front of the Montgomery left fielder and both runners scored to make the score 3-1. The clutch single opened the gates for the Trojans as they began to loosen up offensively.

Viking pitcher Josh Lenney had a difficult time with his control, but he didn't miss the strike zone by much in any frame. It was a good job by the Petaluma hitters who did not offer at pitches which were off the corners of the plate.

Finally in the fourth inning, the Trojans broke it open on a two-run double by Austin Gabbert hitting out of the No. 3 slot. One of the runners reached when a bunt was misplayed by Lenney. Gabbert had four hits and five RBIs in the Wednesday double header sweep.

Petaluma starting pitcher Dante Del Prete went the distance, scatteringsix hits to pick up the win. He relied on an assortment of off-speed deliveries to keep Montgomery batters off balance with runners aboard. Del Prete also picked off a runner at first in the sixth inning. Montgomery had at least one base runner in every inning except the seventh.

Matt Miller and Peyton Miramontez had two hits each for the Vikings.
