&uot;Our pitchers delivered a nonhitter and the opponent only put five balls into play, which gave our defense a pretty easy night," coach Steve Lee said. "I know the tournament will bring a larger challenge to us before it's over, but not one I believe we can't handle.&uot;
Callen faced eight batters in the first two innings and struck out four. McKeown worked the final two innings, facing seven batters and striking out four. Callen picked up the win.
Trent Jones paced the offense for Greenville as he went 2nforn2 at the plate with two singles and two RBI. Jeffrey Stead also finished with two hits and had one RBI.
