Hunter Williams went the first four innings on the mound, giving up two runs — one earned — on four hits while walking three and striking out three. Pieh pitched the last three innings, giving up a run on two hits while striking out two.

Pieh once again led at the plate, going 2 for 3 with two runs and two RBIs.
