BREMEN â€” On a night when the rain, wind and cold affected the game from the start, John Glennâ€™s bats came out on fire.

Trailing 7-2 after a big six-inning first by Glenn, the Lions cut into the deficit with three runs in the bottom half of the fourth as Tyler Coffel and Jacob Bennitt both drew walks followed by a long triple from Dillon Mullen, who scored on a wild pitch to bring the score to 7-5.
