Then Wall's bats came alive for a five run third inning capped off by Tanner Seider stealing home and a three-run home run by Charlie Mascorro to put the Hawks up 7-1.
Jim Ned would make it 7-2 in the fourth inning on an RBI fielder's choice by Ty Doty.
Wall would tack on four unanswered runs before an RBI double by Hunter Gill in the sixth inning drove in Doty to make the score 11-3 in favor of Wall.
Mascorro, who led the Hawks with four RBIs, would drive in Gage Weishuhn on an RBI ground out before an RBI double by Sutton Hurst enacted the run-rule in the bottom of the sixth.
Heuertz would get the win for Wall after going four-and-two-thirds innings where he struck out six and allowed two runs on three hits.
Weishuhn threw an inning of relief and allowed one run on two hits with one strikeout.
