Ian Robinson had a two-run double that drew the Gorillas within 5-3 in the fourth inning. Derek Hackney doubled and scored on Brad Foss' RBI single in the fifth and Cody Ball drove in Foss with the tying run a batter later.

In the seventh inning, LWU's Nick Kolley singled to open the frame against Ryan McKay (1-3), was bunted to second and advanced to third on Wade Rothermich's single. He came home with the winning run on Jerry Roam's RBI grounder.

In game two, the Lions broke open a 2-2 game with a pair of runs in the fifth inning and LWU starter Austin Klein made that lead stand up. Klein (4-1) scattered six hits in the complete-game win.
