Andy Hunter grounded out, moving the two runners over. Marco Gonzales struck a single into left field to bring around both runners for Gonzaga. Maxx Garrett doubled to score Gonzales and attempted to take third on the throw, but was thrown out for the third out with the score 6-0.

With nowhere to put him, Eslick was hit by a pitch to score Moon. Bolinger ripped a double down the left field line to score two more. Stanford grounded out to second, allowing Halcomb to score.
