Bakker had four hits in game one and led off game two with a two-RBI single in inning one.

The Bears were tied 3-3 after three innings and had a five-run top of the fourth to pull away.

The fourth was highlighted by singles from both Josh Eggers and Travis Haen. Moe Handcox also contributed a sacrifice fly.
