Frampton, Poca's leadoff hitter, lined out hard to left field and Cam Cottrill grounded out to first.
Payne followed with a double and reached third on a wild pitch before David Taylor was struck out looking by Hoover ace Tristan Fields.
A Poca runner didn't reach second base, with Evan McClanahan singling twice for two of his team's three hits.
Fields did his part while Hoover leftfielder Shaun Dotson making a sliding catch of a Cottrill foul ball for the third out of the third and Sean Craze making a sliding grab of a Taylor fly ball in the fourth. That play likely saved the shutout, as McClanahan followed with a single.
Cody Bowen had a single, double and an RBI for Hoover and Fields added a single and RBI, Craze - the No. 8 batter - had a single and a double and Dotson, at No. 9, went 3-for-3 with a triple and an RBI.
Fields was efficient with a 65-pitch effort and five strikeouts and one walk.
Poca came into the game 6-1, which included a victory over Class AAA Cabell Midland.
However, the Dots took a step back, Collins said.
"(Hoover) is a high-energy team," Collins said. "That's what we try to preach to our kids. From the time they get off the bus, they have to have the mentality that we're coming to play today. You can't turn it one, you have to turn it on and leave it on.
"That's what these guys do, and we're not there yet. This is a wakeup call. We feel we have a chance, but we won't have the chance if we wait until the fourth inning. This game doesn't work like that."
