Brazos Valley responded in the top of the 2nd with runners on 1st and 3rd, Chandler Morris stole second and on the throw down to second Kyle O'Keefe took off and beat the throw that followed to home. The Bombers took a lead in the top of the 4th on an O'Keefe homerun. Marshals were quick to reply, in the bottom of the 4th JT Vangelder (Paris JC) had a 2 RBI single that scored Jarrod Huber (SFA) and Andre Ruche (Central Baptist College). Brazos continued the scoring in the top of the 5th with four runs and then added two more in the 6th.
