Bill Jackson, Adam Golding, and Jason Cabral (2) homered for the 'Canes. Chris Menne (2) and Ben Connelly were big guns for the Cannons.
In the early game, the Highlanders rode inside the park homers by Taylor Ives and Todd Hitchings to a 9-3 defeat of the Boilers.
Last Wednesday, the Cannons dropped the Riptide and the Treds lowered the Highlanders. Thursday it was Brewhas over the Boilers, Highlanders over the Cannons, and the 'Canes tamed the Wildcats.
