  Sherman fell to 1-6.

  “We jumped on them early,” said Greenville head coach Cody Salyers. “We made the big defensive plays early in the game. We kind of eased up on them in the middle part of the game, but we finished.”

  Greenville extended its lead to 7-0 in the second with a single by Travis Koger, a hit batter, a Burk single, an error and Hazlett’s bases-loaded walk.

  Sherman scored a run in the third on a Drew Rome triple and an error.

  Dyer led off the fourth with a triple and scored on a Hazlett triple. Trevor White reached on a fielder’s choice. White stole second and third and scored on a wild pitch.

  The Bearcats scored three runs in the fifth on hits from Zach Reeves, Davis Wieck and Case Rolen.

  Greenville struck again in the bottom half of the inning with a walk to Travis Koger and then brother Justin’s two-run blast to left centerfield.
