Lightsey and Jaxon Chambers drove in the two runs.

Starter Gabe Eubanks and Cole Holder went the first five innings on the mound for the Packers and gave up nine runs.

Garron Wingate pitched the last two innings and gave up the final run, although he did not allow a hit. He walked one and hit a batter.

The Packers, who have lost three of their last four games after a 3-1 start, will be back at Packer Park on Tuesday for a 6 p.m. game against Lee County.
