Trailing 3-1 heading into the home half of the second inning, the Pioneers would charge back  cutting the Pilots lead to 3-2. Two more runs would score after a single by Clark Wise (Wofford) allowed both Tyler McIntyre (Central Connecticut) and Zac Bellinger (VCU) to cross the plate giving Elmira a 4-3 lead.

Elmira wouldn’t look back the rest of the night as they would solidify their lead in the sixth inning by batting around leading to six runs scoring including a bases loaded walk with Aaron Nardone (Delaware St.) at the plate.
