With the game knotted at seven heading into the bottom of the 13th inning, Jeff Fuller reached base for ULM on a fielding error. During the next at bat, Justin Stawychny attempted to bunt Fuller over to second, but a fielder's choice got him out at second. Then, later in the inning, with two outs, shortstop Jeremy Sy, stepped up to the plate, and while facing a 1-0 count, launched a two-run homer to seal the victory.

The high-scoring game saw a combined 16 runs and 25 hits
