The Tigers were cruising behind McKenzie LaCount in game one, before Thomas tied the score, 4-4, in the top of the 6th inning with a 3-run rally. In the bottom of the 7th, Andrew loaded the bases with one out, when Kaitlyn Classon drove a shot down the first base line that was bobbled, allowing Carrie McWaters to score the winning run. LaCount picked up her 7th win in the circle, while Ryla Christian went 2 for 3 with a triple and an RBI, Kaylan Pruitt was 2 for 3 with a pair of runs scored and an RBI, LaCount was 2 for 3 with an RBI, McWaters went 2 for 4 with a pair of runs scored, Johnson was 2 for 4, and Classen was 1 for 4 with 2 RBI, as the Tigers pounded out 11 hits.

Both McWaters and Pruitt went 2 for 4 with an RBI, with McWaters doubling and scoring once, Johnson helped her own cause, going 1 for 4 while doubling and scoring twice, and Abigail McIntosh went 2 for 3 as the Tigers added another 12 hits in the win.
