"Alec [Brickner] pitched really well, but we can't give good teams extra outs, and that was what hurt us tonight," Calvert coach Matt Coleman said.
"We had four errors that accounted for six unearned runs," he said. "In addition, we left 10 runners stranded on base. We need to improve our situational hitting as we head down the stretch."
Calvert (11-6) mustered only five singles, one each by Derek Herzog, Matt Frank, Ryan Huss, Brendan Deats and Austin Perry.
Herzog and Eric Elchert both scored.
Brickner fell to 4-2, but fanned eight.
Brady McKillips drove in two runs and doubled for the Blue Streaks (16-5) and Jacob Walters doubled and scored.
Garrett Newton added two runs and two singles and Lucas Will scored twice and singled to help Derrick Kirkwood get the win.
