Jacob Klemundt, Hunter Dickinson and Logan Hernandez each chipped in with a hit.
In game two Hesperia prevailed in a back and forth game 6-5. Hunter Billings started and went 4 1/3 innings allowing four runs but it was Johnny Segura who earned the win allowing just one hit and one run in an inning and third in relief. Offensively for the Panthers, Jacob Klemundt went 2 for 3 with two stolen bases, Hunter Dickinson went 3 for 3 and Logan Balkema went 1 for 3 with a double and two RBI's.
