Ruíz Delivers Clutch At-Bat for North Carolina in Walk-Off Win
The Illinois Warhawks got a superb performance from pitcher Jon Francis, but the North Carolina Aviators still won the game, 6-5. Francis was named the player of the game despite the loss. He threw 8 innings allowing 6 runs. North Carolina reliever Lou Moore was the winner. His record is now 1-1. Jon Francis took the loss. The Warhawks fall to 10-17 and continue their uneven start to the 2044 season.

David Ruíz was the walk-off hero for North Carolina. With the game tied in the bottom of the ninth inning, the Aviators designated hitter hit a dramatic solo home run to send the teams home.

"We're in a marathon, not a sprint," said Ruíz. "But I like how we're playing right now."
