After Rose sacrificed him to second, Williams grounded out, putting Norris and the Warriors on the verge of getting out of trouble.
But Hawkins chose to issue Greco an intentional walk, putting two on for Woodrow's No. 3 hitter Logan Wriston.
That move turned out to be a game-turning mistake as Wriston pounded the second pitch he saw deep over the left-field wall, giving the Flying Eagles their second hit, their first lead and momentum for good.
It was Wriston's first home run of the season after hitting four last year.
"He's batting third for a reason," Daniel said. "He's a heck of a hitter. He's been sick for two weeks, which has put him in a big slump with his average, but he's a quality kid."
"It was a curveball away and I just swung and hit the ball," Wriston said. "You just have to clear your mind and focus on the pitch. It was definitely payback for disrespecting me."
Hawkins said the intentional walk was more about matchups than any form of disrespect.
"We had not gotten Greco out in two games," Hawkins said. "With a base open - we had a really good scouting report, the Wriston kid only got one base hit off us in two games so we wanted to go after him. Wriston stepped up and made it hurt."
To Hawkins' point, Greco had a 4-for-4 day against Norris in the teams' second matchup of the regular season, a 5-3 win for Woodrow on April 29.
Greco singled with one out in the first inning for the Eagles' only other hit in the game.
Chaz Davis had the only multi-hit effort on the night, going 2 for 3 with a double for Riverside. His double was the only extra-base hit for the Warriors (13-16) and he also scored their only run.
