- Wisconsin Lutheran got on the board in the last of the fourth on a one out sacrifice fly to center by Ryan Michael to score Ryan Stancl
- The Shoremen answered right away with a two-run top half of the fifth.  With one away, Barclay doubled to center to chase home Robertson to make it 3-1.  Barclay would come around to scoring on a fielding error during the next at bat, which was with Charlie Meder at the plate to push the lead to three runs.
