SAU (14-25) out-hit the Mustangs (12-33-1) 9-5 and scored twice in the 10th to take the lead. The Bees had to hold on as the Mustangs put runners at second and third with two outs before winning pitcher Brandon Duplessis (3-6) enticed a game-ending ground ball. Duplessis pitched all 10 innings, allowing five hits and the one earned run while walking two and fanning five.

SAU scored all three of its runs without recording an RBI as all three scored on throwing errors. The top three batters in SAU's lineup – Adonis Brown, Jake Fields and Matt Rosenberger, along with Matt Page, all had two hits.
