Lance Blaszak started on the mound for Saline, giving up an unearned run in three innings of work. CF Alex Morrison gave Saline a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning with a long, high flyball over the fence in left-centerfield.
With the wind blowing hard, both teams struggled in the field at times.
