CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- The Navy team remained undefeated in the 2013 Fall World Series with a 4-3 victory against the Blue team for their fourth win of the series in as many games.
Junior Benton Moss took the mound for the Navy team, getting his second start of the Fall World Series. In his 5.1 innings, Moss struck out five while allowing just three runs.
Two runs in the top of the first inning gave the Navy team an early lead over the Blue team's starting sophomore right-hander Trent Thornton.
Moss allowed just one hit in the first inning and followed that up with a 1-2-3 second inning before a leadoff double, an error and a walk loaded the bases for the Blue team with no outs in the bottom of the third inning.
A single by catcher Adrian Chacon scored the Blue team's first run of the game and kept the bases loaded. They would take advantage of it once more when a sac fly by Tom Zengel tied the score at 2 before the inning ended.
That tie didn't last for long though, as the Navy team once again took the lead in the top of the fifth inning.
They scored two more runs, this time off a two-run home run by Navy team shortstop Michael Russell - his second home run of the Fall World Series.
The Blue team tacked on one more run in the bottom of the sixth inning with a RBI single by Adam Pate before junior Chris McCue came out in relief for the Navy team to close out the game.
McCue allowed no hits or runs while striking out three in his 3.2 innings of on the mound, as he recorded the save for the Navy team. A.J. Bogucki also recorded no runs in his four innings of relief for the Blue team.
The Fall World Series continues at noon on Saturday at Boshamer Stadium.
