A neither team scored runs in the fifth and UWSP pulled away in the sixth with another four-run inning.

Tyler Flood (Madison, WI/La Follette) earned the victory, throwing five innings of five-hit baseball, striking out five while surrendering just two earned runs. JP Feyereisen (River Falls, WI/River Falls) also threw a scoreless inning in relief.

Offensively, Gerber finished the day 4-for-4 with four RBIs and three runs scored. Cody Hanke (Marathon, WI/Marathon) finished the day 2-for-3 with two RBIs.
