Aden Campbell, the sophomore from Western Illinois, made his presence felt at the plate. His three hits and two RBI led the Red Sox offensive charge. Leadoff hitter Justin Erlandson and Derek Slade also chipped in two hits a piece.
Red Sox starter Ben Schweinfurth picked up the victory after throwing 5.2 innings. Andrew Mirasty came on in relief to get the final out of the 6th inning and end the Swift Current threat. Skyler Henson pitched a perfect 7th inning for the save.
Nelson Quark got the start and the loss for the Indians. Quark lasted just 3.1 innings giving up all six Red Sox runs on six hits.
573 fans were on hand to watch the Red Sox win their eighth win of the season.
