"He was dominant on the mound," Meridian coach Steve Slesk said in a phone interview. "Right now, we aren't where we need to be, but things are really improving for our baseball club, and it was a step in the right direction."
Tucker Bronkema, Jake Plagerman and Tanner Tutterow each had two hits a piece.
