In the fourth inning, Thomas came home when Schineller singled. Dean Nunez laid down a fantastic bunt allowing Henry Schineller and Brandon Marquez to cross the plate. Sweet hit another single to bring in Nunez and Georges totaling Wells Fargo’s runs to eight. Will Bonn scored the ninth run in the fourth off a single by Leppo.
