Holding a tight 1-0 advantage for most of the game, Pierre cushioned their lead with five runs in the final two innings. Connor Ryan led the Pierre offense in game one with four RBI’s

In game two, both Pierre & RC Stevens put runners on base but it was Pierre that was able to take advantage, pulling out an 8-4 victory.
