The victory was closed out by the southpaw Mitchell, who struck out one and gave up a hit in 1.1 innings. For Maroon, freshman right-hander Cole Gordon earned the start, striking out a game-high four in 3.0 stanzas. Sophomore righty Zac Houston struck out two in an inning, before redshirt freshman right hander Levi Mintz tossed a scoreless final frame.
