Wood-Joliet led the OC offense with two hits and two RBIs, while Dulaba chipped in with three hits. Trevor Brigden picked up the win in relief.

In Game 2, Brandon Graham’s two-run double in the ninth inning sent the Coyotes to an 8-7 win over PBA. Jake Fischer had two hits, including a solo home run. Justin Lanigan earned the win with two innings of work in relief.

On Sunday, PBA turned the tables with a pair of a 4-1 wins over the Coyotes, to earn the split. In the first game, OC managed just three hits off Dawgs pitching.
