The Lions struck first with two in the top of the opening frame as Beau Phillips and Matt Smith had back-to-back singles to start things off. Logan Moon reached on a fielder's choice, putting runners at the corners and one out in the inning. Axel Johnson grounded out to the right side to drive in Phillips for the first run, and Brett Graham singled to left field to drive in Moon for run number two in the inning. 

Drury scored three in the bottom of the first and another run in the fourth, before the Lions added another run of their own in the top of the sixth on a sacrifice fly from Jared Lupo, scoring Brandon Weller
