In the second, the Baycats would bat around their order, scoring three runs, two coming in on a DeGrace bases loaded single and the other on an RBI single by Jordan Castaldo. Barrie went on to score four more in the fourth with Atkinson doubling to score one of the runs and later scoring on a Jeff Cowan single.

Hamilton would get back on the board in the eighth inning. Nate Mastervick opened the inning with a single and later scored on a single by Connor Bowie but by that point the damage had been done and the Baycats had a commanding 16-2 lead.

For the Cardinals, Kyle Adoranti took the loss, going four innings in the start, allowing seven runs on five hits, walking eight batters and striking out one. Benson Merritt came in to pitch to start the fifth, allowing five runs, only one was earned, on five hits while walking one and striking out one.
