The last game of the trip saw the Wildcats have a re-match with St. Paul. The bats were blazing for the Wildcats as they pounded out 14 hits on 29 at bats while outscoring the opposition in a 5 inning run-rule 16-0. Ethan Shelton led the Cats going 4-4 at the plate with 2 RBI’s. Aaron Hubbell captured the win giving up 5 hits and striking out 8.
