They fell behind by five runs twice and six runs once in 14-10 loss at Clark.

How it happened: The Penguins got on the board first in the 2nd inning on an error by Jack Swisher.

The Titans quickly responded in the 3rd with an RBI-single by Skyler Vail that scored Hayden Curtis to even the game at one.

The Penguins broke out in the bottom-of-the 3rd with five runs off an RBI-single, three-run double and a would-be RBI-ground out but instead was an error that allowed the runner to reach base and the run to score.

The Titans would chip away with a sacrifice fly in the 4th inning from Hayden Curtis that scored Jaxon Woodhouse.

The next inning Jaxon Woodhouse hit a sacrifice fly to right field that scored Takanori Shimizu.

The Titans got an RBI-triple from Hayden Curtis that scored Henry Lovekamp in the 6th and made it a two-run game 6-4.

Clark responded in the bottom half with a bases loaded walk, RBI-single and a double-play that scored their ninth run and made it 9-5.

A sacrifice pop-up to the pitcher and an RBI-single made it 11-5 after seven innings.

Down by their largest margin, the Titans battled back in the 8th with a sacrifice fly from Curran Mitzel that scored Henry Lovekamp. Skyler Vail would hit a two-run single to score Jack Swisher and Hayden Curtis to make it 11-8 Clark. After an error at third base and RBI for Matt Dallas that scored Takanori Shimizu, it was a two-run game. Nathan Sprenger would continue the rally with an RBI-single that scored Skyler Vail and made it 11-10 Clark.

Like their previous rallies, the Titans pitching could hold Clark. The Penguins got a two-run triple and pass-ball run that made it 14-10.
