Crusaders pitcher Danny Rice was tagged with a complete-game loss.
Nick Evans had two hits and scored two runs for Holy Cross.

Dylan MacKenzie reached base five times for the Shammies on two singles, two doubles and a walk, scoring three runs in the process.
Josh Fifield scattered five hits for the win, with Feildians starter Alex Curtis taking the loss.
A third game, this one played at Smallwood Field in Mount Pearl, also was abbreviated by the mercy rule.
In that one, the Knights blasted the Gonzaga Vikings 19-3 in five innings, with Matt Janes tossing a three-hitter for the win.
Nik French, Alex French and Steve Crooks each had two hits for the Knights.
Jared Milley, the first of three Vikings pitchers, took the loss.
