The young guns led the way with Itzkowitz finishing 5- for-6 with 6 RBIs and five runs scored, while Schon filled out the stat sheet with four runs scored and five ribbies from the lead-off spot.

Veteran Danny Fax also had a big night, going 4-for-4 with 4 RBIs, before stepping aside for team elder statesman Yomi Groner, who made his first appearance since the season opener and closed out the game for the save.

“We’re coming together at the right time and really gelling as a team,” said manager Aron Heller, who returned from an illness that kept him out of the first two games of his Warrior career.

“With the cadre of young talent that we have in place together with our veteran leadership, I feel very confident going into the playoffs.”
