After Justin Moore led off the fourth inning with a single, Wesley Marchman launched the ball over the outfield fence for a two-run home run.
Luke Swann followed with a solo home run, cutting Bremen’s lead to 6-3.
The Blue Devils answered with a single run in the bottom of the fourth inning, and they capped the scoring with two runs in the fifth.
