Three Rivers started hot with two runs in the first inning off a single, walk, and error. Vicksburg added one in the bottom of the first with Trevor Pryson bringing in Garrett Ketelaar. Pryson gave the Bulldogs the lead in the third inning with a three-run home run for a four RBI game.
Freshman Parker Wilson allowed two unearned runs in his five inning start. The game was called after the top of the sixth due to impending darkness and some light rain.
