In their fourth game of the season, the Chiefs defeated Atlantic 10-0, giving them their first win of the season.

Within the top of the first inning alone, Chiefs scored four runs. Senior Jared Petronis earned a double, while shortly after Kobe Lewis hit for a triple.

The Chiefs’ continued success was backed with pitcher Justin Weithorn’s abilities in the second inning along with the players in the field who provided strong and reliable defense.

After a series of singles, Santaluces entered the third inning with 6 runs. These small plays continued through the fifth inning.
