Mosinee scored first with two runs in the third inning. Jace Baumann reached base on a fielder’s choice and advanced to second when Matt Olson made it to first on an error. Both runners then moved into scoring position on a wild pitch by Rebels starter Jacob DeMeyer. Baumann scored on a sacrifice fly by Austin Freiboth and Olson reached home on a single by Zach Bednar.
The Rebels got a run back in the top of the fourth on back-to-back hits with two outs when Cole Spaulding singled and Josh Randolph doubled off of Bednar, who relieved Baumann after three shutout innings starting on the mound.
The game deadlocked at 2-2 in the top of the fifth when the Rebels added another run. Easton Senoraske led off with a single and advanced to second on an error before making it to third on a wild pitch by Bednar and scoring on a single by DeMeyer.
