Nick Pritz scored Culver’s only run in the top of the fifth as he coaxed a leadoff walk from Lindsey with the count full then stole second, and George Alvarado singled to right with two outs to drive him home. Chris Zehner doubled for the Cavs, and Collin Stevens took the loss on the mound giving up seven hits with one strikeout and one walk for four earned runs.
Cody Shively went 2-for-2 with a double and an RBI, and Zak Shively went 2-for-3 with two stolen bases for the Trojans, who improve to 5-8 overall with a 2-3 conference mark.
