Miles did have an answer in the second inning when a couple of errors by the Chargers defense allowed two runs to come in. Those two runs would be all Miles would score until the ninth inning.

Brock continued his strong day in the fourth and eighth innings, when he smacked both an RBI single and an RBI double to continue the scoring for UAH.  Brandon Lawing lined an opposite-field triple in the fifth inning that brought home Sherrill, making the UAH lead 4-2.

Brad Clay and Vincent Kortbawi knocked in a pair of runs in the eighth inning to add some insurance as well. Clay recorded a hit in his only plate appearance and also scored a run.
