The good part was that the Warsaw Wildcats were playing at home. With most early games scheduled on the road and the cancellation of games due to inclement weather, home games have been few and far between.
The bad news was that the 12-7 California Pintos were pretty good and came out with a 11-6 victory.
Joey Mace got the start for the Wildcats and after lead off man Hayden Green led off reaching first on an error and scored on a shot over the left field fence by the third hitter on the order Jacob Walker. That was the first home run hit against the Wildcats all season. It had been a homer less season as unfortunately, the Wildcats have not hit a homer all year.
California would score two more in the second thanks to an error, a single and a passed ball. The Wildcats would answer with a run in their half inning thanks to an error, a passed ball and an ground out.
Mace got the side  out in the third and the Wildcats got closer with two runs scored. Tommy  Robitsch would double in the gap in right, go to third on a wild pitch and score on a sacrifice fly by Riley Bagley. The play at the plate saw the relay from third hitting the runner in the back. Keegan Glenn would score after an infield hit a single by Matt Luebbert and single by Cash Miller.
The Pintos would score three in the fourth thanks to some solid singles. 
Probably, the best catch of the game came on a pop foul near the first base fence that the 6’5 Cash Miller would reach up and make an excellent grab to say the least.
Mace would settle down and get out of the fifth without giving up a run. The Wildcats got back into the game with two more runs and it was 8-6.
Scott Winters came in for Mace in the sixth and was crushed for five runs. The Wildcats scored one in their sixth but to no availed as they lost 11-6.
