Crenshaw had the bases loaded with two outs in top of the sixth, but Mark Porter was forced out at second on Steve Miles' grounder to shortstop to end the inning.

Tim Gaulth threw a four-hitter in defeat, striking out five and walking three. Shortstop Carl Askew had an RBI double for the Cougars only run.
