Senior Nick Wise doubled and advanced to third on an out by Freshman Corey Gokan, and then scored on an out by Freshman Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Fitzpatrick singled and brought Wise in for the first run, stealing second himself. Obata singled, bringing Fitzpatrick home for the second run. The Hawks scored again in the 6th in response to a run by St. Francis, when Fitzpatrick scored on an RBI by Glennon.
