Langston pitched out of trouble through the first four innings, stranding five Bison runners, but Lipscomb put together five hits in the fifth and, aided by one ETSU error, claimed its first lead of the night.

Aughey and Moore each finished 3-for-4 with a run scored on the night, while the Bisons received a pair of three-hit performances from center fielder Casey Bond and first baseman Ryan Wilkins. Both Bond and Wilkins finished the night with two runs scored and two RBI as well.
