The Curve would take the lead in the third, scoring three runs before adding a run in the next two innings. The Pipeliners would be shutout the rest of the way, and the Curve added three more in the ninth to defeat McPherson 8-1. 

Jaxson Edwards was 2 for 2 at the plate with a double, while Jack Hirchert also had a multi-hit game going 2 for 4. Coach Child mentioned out-hitting the Curve, but ultimately reflected by saying, “We just couldn’t string hits together to generate runs

The Pipes will return to action Friday, when they travel to Wellington to take on the Heat at 7:00 p.m.
