The Cougars jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Ben Boykin drew a one-out walk and Carl Wise followed with home run to left field to clear the bases.

The College used a similar formula in the third inning to expand its lead. Boykin drew a leadoff walk, Wise followed with a single and the two advanced on an error. Pappas plated Boykin with a sacrifice fly and Welke hit a two-run home run over the left field fence for a 5-0 lead.

Coastal got on the board in the fourth. Kane hit a leadoff double and Riley Norton welcomed new Cougar pitcher Brandon Glazer with an RBI single to center field. G.K. Young, who doubled earlier, hit a ball deep to the center field wall that was ruled a triple, scoring Norton on the play.

The Cougars got one of those runs back in the fourth. Butler singled and advanced to third on a pair of wild pitches. After a walk, Wise brought Butler home with a sacrifice fly to right field.

The Chants bounced back to cut its deficit in half in the fifth. Anthony Marks hit a leadoff single, took second on a wild pitch and scored on an RBI single from Michael Paez.

With two outs, Morgan Phillips hit a double to score Wise. Bradley Jones then reached on an error, allowing Pappas to score.
