Joey Hanowski helped him at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a run, with Tony Arnold scoring the other run and Mitch Gregory knocking in one.
Rob Munnell led Little Falls in the finale, collecting three hits, two runs and an RBI as the Flyers prevailed 10-6.
Gregory added a pair of hits and two runs and Luke Thoma doubled, while Joe Tuholsky notched the win in relief.
