The win for the Pride is their fifth in a row as they see their unbeaten streak reach eight games.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
Springfield did most of their damage in the second and third innings, scoring five runs in each frame. The key play in the second came in the form of a Cooney three-run double. The big blows in the third were two-run singles from Cooney and David Wells.
On the mound, Springfield starting hurler Kyle Naples struck out five over five innings, allowing just a Landon Fish (New Port Richey, Fla.) leadoff single in the fourth.
Following Naples, a quartet of Pride relievers tossed the final four innings and yielding just two hits.

In addition to Fish (2-for-4), Ben Chajet (Hillsboro Beach, Fla.) had a one out double to center in the bottom of the eighth.
