South Williamsport, PA - Saturday was a rough outing for Carson Kelley, but Great Lakes still managed to pull out a 7-5 victory over Northwest in six innings at Lamade Stadium.

Carson Kelley allowed five in 5 1/3, but the bullpen gave up no runs and the offense banged out six to pick up the slack and secure the win for Great Lakes.

Great Lakes held off Northwest, as Northwest was unable to overcome a seven-run fifth inning deficit.

Northwest scored five runs in the sixth on two three-run blasts. Still, Northwest couldn't draw even.

Devin Obee racked up three RBIs on two hits for Great Lakes. He singled in the fourth inning and homered in the fifth inning.

Spencer Scott ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with the loss. He lasted just one inning, walked one, struck out one, and allowed three runs.

Great Lakes closer Carson Myers put away the final two outs to record the save.

Great Lakes went up for good in the fourth, scoring three runs on an RBI single by Tayshaun Jones.

Great Lakes added four more runs in the bottom of the fifth. A clutch error scored Eli Burwash to open the scoring in the frame. That was followed up by Obee's three-run home run, plating Jonah Thurman and Carson Kelley.
