The Salamanders started strong in the first inning scoring three runs. Josh Hollander (Sophomore, Kent State) hit a leadoff double and later scored on a ground out by Zach Piazza (Sophomore, Limestone). Adam Sisk (Junior, James Madison) and Dalton Hoiles (Junior, Shippensburg) also scored in the first inning.

The Tobs scored two runs of their own in the bottom of the first, but were unable to keep the score close the rest of the night.

Sisk led the Salamanders in scoring with three runs off one hit. Hollander, Piazza, and Hoiles all followed with two runs each. The remaining four runs were scored by Cory Wood (Freshman, Coastal Carolina), Tripp Shelton (Junior, UNCG), Jacob Jaye (Junior, VMI) and Jack Conley (Sophomore, NC State) with each scoring one run.

Six Salamanders tallied RBIs on the night. Isaacson led the way with three. Piazza, Hoiles, and Jaye all had two each while Hollander and Sisk each had one.
