The Jackals never trailed on the humid Tuesday evening in Worcester.

Craig Clark allowed nine hits but only one run. He struck out eight in six innings to improve to 4-4 on the season. Worcester would leave 13 runners on base in their one-run, 12-hit performance.
Tornadoes starter Kevin Cooper drops to 3-6 this season. He allowed nine runs off 10 hits.
