The Highlanders trailed 7-4 after five innings. But then MCC produced a pair of triples followed by a pair of doubles as part of a five-run rally in the bottom of the sixth. The Highlanders took the lead when Garrett Martin’s double brought in Miguel Santos and Mason Greer for a 9-7 advantage.
Santos tripled in the bottom of the seventh to score Benjamin Rosengard. And Jaylen Williams doubled in the bottom of the eighth to score Dominic Tamez and Marquis Jackson.
MCC relief pitcher Jack Hattrup pitched 3 2/3 scoreless innings to earn the win. He struck out seven and didn’t give up a hit.
