The medical examiner who performed an autopsy today ruled the child died from accidental drowning.

The Terriers manufacture a run the old fashioned way and it's 1-to-nothing. In the top of the 2nd, the Terriers will try to add to that lead as Andy Goodman slaps one into left field. Chris Trent will try to score from second, but he is gunned down at the plate by Thomas Giles. In the top of the 3rd, Trent would get back at the Pioneers as he hits one into right field for the single. That would set the table for Goodman, who hits another one into left.
