The Bucks play the top-seeded Belgrade Bandits at 2 p.m. in the second round Friday.

Burke tallied two strikeouts and walked just one batter in the complete game, and 64% of his 58 pitches were strikes.

The Bucks (22-27) broke the game open with a five-run third inning that included a two-run double by Dillon Coleman. The Bucks added two more runs in the fourth and three more in the fifth.

Michael Armstrong was 2 for 2 to go with two runs scored and ended the game with a one-run double. Daniel Beers added two runs, including the final score. Zane Haarer and Andrew Western each added one hit.
