Elms was able to get two more runs in the top of the fourth on a Tea Sullivan (Dracut, MA) sacrifice fly and another run on a Sylvia single to center field. The Hawks would answer right back in the bottom of the fifth, plating two runs, to extend their lead to five, and take game one 8-3.
The Blazers pick up 12 hits in the game and would leave seven runners on base.
