Anthony Ciango (NIU) took the loss (0-2) for the Pioneers.
Elmira took a 3-0 lead in the top of the first to begin the scoring. Spencer Henderson (UC Davis) reached on a fielders' choice and then a Watertown error allowed runners on first and second with one out. Ryan Plantier (Cornell) followed with a three-run home run to left field scoring Spencer Henderson and Chris Knott (East Stroudsburg). The home run was Plantier’s third of the season.
Watertown then scored seven unanswered runs to pull out the victory.

In the fifth, the Rams scored three runs with only one being earned. JJ Wagner (Pacific) delivered a one out RBI single to left field scoring Dominic Lopez.

Colin Theroux (Nevada) came around to score as well as JJ Wagner. The Rams scored their final run in the sixth on a sacrifice fly by Dominic Lopez. (Please note that Joe Moroney should be credited with a sacrifice bunt in the sixth inning).
