Following a pair of scoreless innings, WSC scored twice in the top of the third and added another run in the fourth to lead 3-0. After a scoreless fifth, Bemidji State scored their lone run in the sixth to trail 3-1. Wayne State then capped off the game with a three-run eighth and one more run in the ninth to win 7-1. Bemidji State outhit WSC, 10-6 and committed two errors compared to one by WSC.

Alex Logelin posted a two-run home run and accounted for three total RBI and one run scored while Chris Cornish added a solo home run for WSC. Noah Roberts singled twice, doubled, drove in a run and scored once; Colin Lynam doubled and scored twice; Cade Lynam accounted for a RBI and run scored as Garrett Svoboda scored once.

Keean Allen (2-1) picked up the win in six innings allowing an earned run off eight hits while striking out five batters and walking two. Andrew Staebell earned his second save of the season in the final three innings allowing two hits while striking out five batters and walking one.
