The Bulldogs then scored three more runs in the sixth inning to pad their lead to six and would go on to win by that amount to finish the regular season with a 13-3 record.

Roberts finished with three RBIs in the win for BBA.

Bulldogs leadoff hitter James Reilly went 3-4 at the plate with two RBIs and three runs scored.
