Albany took the lead in the second when Jerry Huntzinger (Seton Hall) singled and came around to score on the strength of two Blue Sox errors. The Dutchmen added another in the fourth when Brandon Seltzer (Palm Beach Atlantic) hit an RBI single. 

Seltzer finished 2-for-5 with two RBI, a stolen base, and a run scored. Huntzinger was 2-for-5 with two runs scored and a stolen base. 

Utica tied it at two in the bottom of the fourth on a Neiko Ramos (Siena) two-run double. 

The Dutchmen got them both back in the fifth when Ubaldo Lopez (Dartmouth) walked and later scored on a wild pitch before Griffen Herrera (Azusa Pacific) hit an RBI single one pitch later.

Jacob Randolph (Central Alabama CC) started and took the loss for Utica. He pitched four innings and allowed three runs, two earned, on seven hits. He surrendered four walks and had five strikeouts. 

Cameron Collett (Marshall) was 2-for-3 with a pair of walks and a run scored, while the defending Spotlight Player of the Week recipient Cameron Masterman (Louisville) was 2-for-4 with two walks, an RBI, a stolen base, and two runs. Herrera finished 2-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base.
