Wisconsin (37-40) was held off the scoreboard by Kernels starting pitcher Tyler Beck for the first five innings. The right-hander tossed five scoreless innings, walked two, allowed two hits, and struck out five before turning the game over to his bullpen.

Erik Manoah Jr was the first Kernels reliever and he worked 1-1/3 innings before leaving in the seventh with a runner on first. Osiris German got the final two outs of the seventh and the first out of the eighth after giving up a single. Zach Featherstone got the last two outs of the eighth and pitched around a one-out single by Carlos Rodríguez in the bottom of the ninth to pick up the save. The quartet of Kernels combined for twelve strikeouts and walked three.
