They added another run in each of the next two innings, followed by two in the fifth to extend their lead to by five in the 6-0 game-one victory. 
 
The Lions (12-18, 1-5 MIAA) began a rally in the seventh with two runners on base, but would not score.
 
Angel Badalamenti went 2-for-3 with a double in the fifth spot in the lineup. Shelby Friend also had a single in the seventh behind Badalamenti.

UCM came back with a two-run single in the bottom half of the sixth to knot it all up at 3-3 heading into the seventh. MSSU's Ashley Caldarella singled in the go-ahead run in the top of the seventh as the Lions retook the lead by one (4-3).
 
Then with a runner on second and one out, the Jennies launched a home run to left field and ultimately take game two by a final score of 5-4.
