Justin Harris went 3-for-5 with four RBIs. Levi Parker drove in three runs, including a two-run homer in the eighth. Deal Long also belted a solo homer in the eighth for the Hornets.

Pitt State collected eight hits in the contest, but the Gorillas stranded 10 baserunners.

Jarrod Miller (1-1), Cory Sager and Connor Sjolander combined on the shutout.
