Hunter Hargrove’s big day powered the Black team past the Red team 5-3 Friday afternoon at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.

Hargrove finished the day 3-for-4 at the plate with a double and a pair of home runs for three RBIs.

He was the lone Red Raider to finish with multiple hits for the Black team, while the Red team had three — Grant Little, Josh Jung and Cody Farhat.

Erikson Lanning picked up the win in his second outing of the Red and Black Series.

He started the first game and gave up three runs off five hits with three walks through four innings.

On Friday, Lanning allowed two runs off four hits with two strikeouts through 3 1/3.

Caleb Freeman picked up the loss for the Red team.

Freeman pitched seven innings and gave up five runs off six hits with five walks and eight strikeouts.

The Black team plated its first three runs off three-straight extra base hits to start off the third inning.

Brian Klein led things off with a triple to right center field past a diving Anthony Lyons.

Connor Beck followed with a triple of his own off the center field wall to score the first run of the day for the Black team.

Hunter Hargrove capped things off with a home run over the left field wall.

The Red team answered in the bottom of the third.

Cody Farhat led off with a single up the middle. He later stole second.

Farhat then stole third and a throwing error by catcher Clay Koelzer allowed the Red team to get on the board.

The Red team added another run with two outs as Josh Jung singled up the middle to score Matt Bernstein.

Hargrove’s second home run of the day came in the top of the fifth — a no-doubt bomb over the left field wall — before the Red team added another run.

Michael Berglund led off the inning with a double before back-to-back singles by Grant Little and Bernstein hit him home.

But the Black team wasn’t done just yet.

They added another run in the top of the sixth.

With runners on the corners, Freeman overthrew third trying to pick off the lead runner, which allowed Cameron Warren to score easily.

The win clinches the series for the Black team, 3-1, with the series finale slated for Sunday at 2 p.m.
