The Cardinals (17-6, 5-2) scored five runs on just one hit in the top of the first and added another in the top of the fourth for a 6-0 lead. The Continentals scored once in the bottom of the fourth, when an Augustyn single drove in Mayberry.
Wesleyan scored two more runs in the sixth, one in the seventh, and three in the eighth for a 12-1 advantage. Hamilton added one more run in the bottom of the eighth. Peters singled and advanced to third on a single by Vigneau. Peters scored when Kyle Mason ‘11 reached on a fielding error by the Cardinals’ third baseman. Wesleyan added one more run in the top of the ninth for the final margin.
