The Travelers opened play in their festival by defeating Real Tree, 7-2.

Dalton Shalberg scattered 5 hits over 5 innings for the win and the Travelers put up 7 runs in the first 2 innings to lead from start to finish.

A four-run first inning gave the Travelers all the runs they needed.

Harley Herring doubled to start the inning and one out later, Zach Fowler singled home a run. Korey Floyd followed with a hit and Francisco Alvarez tripled home 2 runs. Matt Martin then delivered a sacrifice fly for the 4-0 lead.

Real Tree scored a run in the top of the second but Shalberg worked out of a bases-loaded jam to avoid further damage.

In the bottom half, the Travelers plated 3 more runs as Herring doubled with 2 out, Leno Ramirez singled and Fowler singled in 2 runs. Floyd's RBI single brought in Fowler to make it 7-1.

That was the end of the Traveler offense as Real Tree relievers Wyatt Carter and Brady Holcomb allowed just one base runner over the last 4 innings.

In their second game, The Travelers lost a 6-0 lead before edging Bartlesville 7-6.

The winning run came in the top of the 7th when Fowler scored on a fielder's choice grounder by Alvarez.
