In the bottom of the first, Hays smoked a bomb to left field for a double to score the first two runs of the game. He followed up his performance in the bottom of the fifth with an RBI single to left field for a 3-0 Outlaws advantage. Two batters later, Patrick Dietz laid out a single to centerfield to score Hays.
South answered back at the top of the sixth with Maddux Soland's two-RBI single to left field, but the Outlaws held on winning 4-2.
Gallatin Valley's Brody Ayers got the win on the pitcher's mound only allowing two runs on five hits through six innings while also striking out three batters.
