Josh Huntley (Aurora, Colo.) put the Bears on the board in the top of the fourth when he blasted a solo homer over the left field fence. The Bears scored again in the top of the fifth, when Henry singled and then scored on Sam Grigo's two-out double to left center, evening the score at 2-2.
The game was suspended after eight innings due to inclement weather.
