“Kody (Keroher) was battling on the mound and everything looked good until we got into the fourth inning. That’s kinda when our wheels kinda came off,” Bruin head coach Mike Viola said.

Bear River scored once in the sixth and twice more in the seventh to cut the lead to a run, but couldn’t complete the comeback.
