After a walk to Hannon, Romeo Cortina (Sam Houston) was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Hubert came in to score on a wild pitch before Hayden Vesely (Blinn) hit an infield single to score Hannon. Cortina was hustling the whole way from second and came around to score on the play, just beating the throw to the plate.

The Strykers cut the Generals lead to 4-3 in the 4th on RBI doubles by Brian Smith and Taylor Taska.

The Generals and Strykers traded runs in the 5th inning to make it a 5-4 game. Cortina lead off with a single, stole second base, advanced to third on a David Paiz, Jr. (Texas State) single, and came in to score on a wild pitch.

Daniel Tunchez, Jr. (Eastfield) pitched a scoreless 6th and 7th inning before giving way to Kaleb Keith (A&M-Corpus Christi) who threw a scoreless 8th. Glenn Sparkman held the Strykers scoreless in the 9th inning for the second straight night to secure the 8-4 victory.
