The Dawgs tacked on a single run late to avoid the shutout. Rigdon earned the win on the mound.

The second game would prove to be different, a back and forth affair would end after five innings because of the time limit - In a three-run Bartlesville loss. SWAT Academy scored four runs in the top of the fifth to secure the win. Bartlesville would put its first three on base in the bottom of the fifth, but could not scratch across a run across.

The Indians led by one entering the fifth after a four-run inning of their own in the bottom of the fourth. Kaden Young and McClendon again would come up with the big base knocks.
