After a scoreless 1st Inning Bluefield State went up 3-0 in the 2nd. The Big Blues added another Run in the 5th and rode it the rest of the way for a 4-0 Shutout victory. Bluefield State Pitcher Austin Stambaugh threw for the entire game.

In the 3rd Inning MUW made it a 5-0 advantage and 9-0 in the 4th. Selma University seemed primed for a rally late in the game but 4 Runs in the 7th Inning were all they managed as the Owls triumphed 9-4. Will Peters was the winning Pitcher.
