Freshman RoOkElLiNgToN works a full count walk in his first collegiate at bat, and against a big-time arm too. Kid is going to be a player.
First hit comes from TheRealShinny on a single up the middle. No score through two innings.
Two scoreless innings for J_Ramsey13 and we’re through four innings, still scoreless. Freshman righty Alex Degen making his debut now.
Xavier strikes first and leads 1-0 after five innings.
@coltyn_kessler lines a two-strike single into LCF to score @RoOkElLiNgToN (walk) and Breydon Daniel (single). @Elliott__Curtis with a SAC bunt to set it up.

A little bad luck for the Cats in the seventh as ARod smokes a ball up the middle with two on, but Xavier had him shaded that way.
