The lone run came on a home run by the White team's Hunter Dawson in the bottom of the fifth. Dawson also had a double as he was White's most productive hitter.
Robertson had a double and a single, and was hit by a pitch in five at-bats, while McDade went 3-4 with two walks and an RBI. Freshman Ryan Ford homered for the Blue.
The losing pitcher was junior college transfer Eric Gilley, who gave up five runs in four-plus innings of work.
