In the bottom half of the inning, Treble’s two-RBI double gave Geneva a 7-4 lead.

The Wings would secure the win in the 8th with a big four-run inning. It started with an RBI double by Brock Kauffman. Trevor Rogers immediately followed that up with a two-RBI double of his own. Leo Wells then hit a sacrifice fly to make 11-4 Geneva.
