Nick Cowperthwaite added a two run single in the third inning when Bangor put four runs on the board to take a 5-1 lead.
Trevor Delaite got the win on the mound despite struggling with his command. Delaite went 4 innings allowing 5 hits and 2 runs. James Prescott followed with 2 solid innings of work before Dennis Farnham pitched a perfect 7th inning.
Bangor will now take on Hawaii in their final game of pool play Thursday at 5pm. A win puts them in the semi-finals as the top seed in their pool.
