Starting off in the 3rd inning, the Pioneers struck first with Jace Jeremiah smacking a ball to left field to bring in the first run of the game to make it 1-0. In the bottom of the 4th inning, the Plainsmen struck back as Connor Higgs drove a ball down the right field line as he hustled and buslted all the way to third for a triple and drove in 2 to give the Plainsmen a 2-1 lead.

In the top of the 8th inning, Declan Wiesner hit a ball hard to the short stop but he fumbled it which allowed the Pioneers to tie it up at 2. in the bottom of the 8th, though Oskar Stark hit a blooper to left field which drove in 1 and almost drove in another but jaylan Ruffin was called out at home. The 1 run was still good enough to give the Plainsmen the lead and they hold on tight to win their 4th win in a row and they now sit atop of the division.
