In the fourth, Jahlani Rogers (FGCU) drove another Saugerties run, regaining the lead. After this, Saugerties got six runners into scoring position over four innings but scored none. Saugerties starter James Reilly found trouble in the sixth, putting two runners on before getting pulled. Drake Quinn (Marist) entered and allowed three runs to score, including the go-ahead single by Nick Giamarusti (Pittsburgh). Reilly finished with four earned runs. Conner Whittaker (Florida State) pitched the final four innings for Amsterdam and struck out seven batters, three in the ninth. Whittaker received the win.
