A pitcher's duel between Christian Adams (RPB) and Ethan Spinner (UNI) kept the game scoreless through four innings. The Wildcats broke through in the fifth inning when Solomon Masters drove in Adams to give Royal Palm a 1-0 lead. It did not last however, as Univerity answered back immediately thanks to a sac fly off the bat of Brendan Whaley.
The game went to the eighth inning, and with the international tiebreaker rule in effect, each team started the inning with a runner on second base.
