A crowd of 1,196 saw the Rainbow Warriors win the first three games of this four-game series. The ’Bows improved to 6-5, their first time over .500 this season. The teams meet again on Tuesday night.

The ’Bows already were without center fielder Adam Fogel, who hurt his right arm on a slide in Saturday’s game.
The ’Bows’ fourth pitcher, Calvin Turchin, worked out of a two-on, one-out jam in the ninth.
