Bryan Galloway started game two, but was chased out just 1.2 innings into the game.

After the teams played a scoreless first inning, New Brockton broke the game open in the second. The Gamecocks plated nine runs on six hits. Galloway was replaced two outs into the frame by Logan Boyce, who took three batters to induce an inning-ending ground out.

New Brockton extended its lead to 12-0 heading into the fifth inning, needing to maintain at least a 10 run lead through the inning to end the game.

As insurance, the Gamecocks scored four runs in the top half of the inning on three hits. Goshen responded by scoring its first runs of the game on two extra base hits.

Galloway drew a one out walk and was driven in by a Jeff Warrick double. Following a pop out and a single, Caleb Gamble drove in two more runs with a double.

Goshen will return to action with a one game stop in Brundidge to face Pike County on Monday. The Eagles return home with a Tuesday tilt against Elba.
