Ryan Cummings went 3-5 with a 2-run home run for the Badgers, while Kendell Carvin went 2-4 at the plate.
After two quick outs in the 1st inning, Brad Holstein was hit by a pitch and then Cummings followed with his 2-run bomb. A Mobile error then lead to two unearned runs and a 4-0 Spring Hill lead.
