It wasn’t until the 10th when pinch hitter Mycal Jones singled, stole second and advanced to third on a wild pitch, then eventually scored on a single from Christian Marrero. Mitch Atkins had a great start going seven innings, only allowing six base runners and striking out nine. Pat Egan came on for the final three innings, also limiting the Pensacola offense. Dan Brewer finished with two hits and a stolen base, while Tommy LaStella also singled and stole a base. Mississippi did not have an extra base hit.

Kyle Wren went 1-4 with a single and a hit by pitch, stealing both second and third in the 3rd inning.
