Rams in the home white, giving Cody Roby four first inning runs, so the righty working with the lead here in the second, and he shows he can play the field, bouncer to first, Dallas Davis grabs it and flips to Roby for the inning ending out.

Bottom half, after Dondrell Harris walked, it's Davis singling hard up the middle, the Seminoles outfielder charges but let's it get past him.

Harris who was running on the pitch, scores easily from first, Davis then takes advantage of a bad relay and he scores, it's 6-0 Rams.

A few pitches later, it's Nick Nelson with a line drive to center that just may have popped up on Tyndall's radar, well over 400 feet, 7-0 at that point, Rams on the way to a 12-0 win, they face Arnold Tuesday night.
