UC Clermont opened their scoring in the bottom of the third with a solo home run from Jake Murray. Clermont followed that up with three more runs off a single from Anthony Bell, back to back doubles from Spencer Henn and Cody Riley, and a single from Jacob Beinke. The Cougars added two runs in the bottom of the fifth, with an Anthony Bell solo home run and a Beinke double that scored Spencer Henn.
