Explorers Use Late-Game Magic to Beat Warhawks
The Oregon Explorers topped the Illinois Warhawks by the score of 5-3, with the largest share of the credit going to third baseman Frank Baker. Baker went 2 for 3 with a home run and a walk, while adding 3 RBI and scoring once for the Explorers. This win makes it 6 in a row for Oregon.

Álex Luna's hit in the top of the ninth was a game-changer. With two out, he rapped a slider from Jesús Garbizo for a 2-run home run. It put Oregon in front, 5-3.

Baker attributed the win to "energy and focus on the part of everyone."
