The Red Wolves (8-8) took advantage of three errors over the first two innings to push across eight runs. They would add five more runs in the third to break the game wide open.
The Breds (7-7) got on the board in the first inning as Ty Stetson extended his streak of reaching safely to 42-straight games with a double to right field. With two outs, Tyler Lawrence drove in Stetson with a single through the left side.

The sixth inning saw the Breds push across three more runs with only one hit. The first three hitters walked to load the bases before a wild pitch pushed across a run. Anthony Bayus then singled home the second run, and a passed ball allowed the third run of the inning to score.
