Scott Dixon clubbed two home runs to lead the Tigers. He finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored and five RBIs.

Chris Bozart went 2-for-2 with a double, and Jesse Hart added a triple and scored two runs. Jimmy Hauser also scored twice.

Zack Bowman struck out seven and walked one in six innings to earn the win.

Ryan McGonigle paced Apollo with a 2-for-3 showing.

Cody Galo struck out one and walked one in four innings to take the loss.
