Andrew Keller hit a first-inning RBI double and scored on a Nate Paisley sacrifice fly in the first inning. Montgomery’s Trevor Kennedy hit an infield RBI single in the fourth inning putting the Raiders on the board but that was the only run scored as Dunlap left runners stranded on second and third in the fifth.
