The Pioneers jumped out 2-0 lead in the 2 nd when Justin Lacy (Longwood) and Aaron Hopper (Marietta) would single. Lacy and Hopper would advance on a wild pitch. Logan Uxa (Arkansas State) would hit a sacrifice fly that would advance both runners. Ty Yesensky (Old Dominion) walked and Pat Hyde (No. Kentucky) brought home the seconds run on a groundout.
The Pioneers continued building their lead in the third inning when BJ Willis (Southern Indiana) would start the inning off with a walk. Ryan Normoyle (Washington) was hit by a pitch. Lacy would line a double to the right field to score Willis and Normoyle.
The Pioneers were not done there, as they would tack on another run in the fifth inning. Normoyle would start the inning off with a single. He would advance to second on a passed ball and moved to third on a wild pitch. Hopper would single to bring Normoyle in for the run.
Five Pioneers pitchers shut down the Mohawks, allowing only five singles.
