Reese went six innings, striking out three and walking just one. He allowed one earned run. 

In game two, Stenger went all seven innings, striking out five and walking none, while allowing just one earned run. 

The Lions scored three runs in the first on an RBI double from MJ Sartin, and RBI singles from Jesse Kinzey and Cullen Baxter. Southern scored a run in the second and picked up another three in the fifth after a three-run home run from Sartin. McCoy picked up an RBI double in the sixth and the Lions invoked the run-rule in the seventh after a bases loaded walk and a two-run double from Ryan put Southern up 11-1. 

Sartin went 2-4 with four RBIs and two runs scored. He added a home run and a double. Ryan went 2-4 with two RBIs, while McCoy was 2-4 with a pair of RBIs and runs scored. Kolkmeyer scored twice, while Kinzey and Baxter had a pair of hits each. Acosta had three runs scored.
