Anthony Munoz pitched one inning of work, allowing three runs to cross the plate two of which counted as earned runs. Munoz walked three Mountaineers and struck out two batters. With a collective effort from Jacob Williamson, Will Lennon, Hayden Borden and Garrison Lange they all helped keep the Mountaineer bats quiet.
