Greenwood pushed ahead for good with five runs over the next two innings, which included a two-run double by Fletcher Bredlau in the second and an RBI single by Xander Hinker in the third.
Spencer scored twice in the third inning as Reed Knecht doubled and scored on a wild pitch, and Madden Prybylski had an RBI single, but that would be all the Rockets could muster.
