WNC scored to tie the game in the bottom of the sixth when Kevin Taylor reached on a fielder's choice and was brought home on an RBI single by Spencer Ofelt. Salt Lake got two runs in the seventh and one in the ninth to top WNC.

Pitcher Kramer Champlin went six innings, giving up three runs and allowing four hits. He was relieved by Tim Peterson who also allowed three runs and four hits, and took the loss for the Wildcats.

Western takes on the College of Southern Idaho at 4 p.m., Friday. Coach DJ Whittemore says, "The match-up with CSI will be a great test and an opportunity for us to show what we're made of."
