Corey Murphy came in relief in the top of the sixth and got the loss, giving up a run on one hit, walked one, and struck out one. Brady Sewell went 2 for 3 at the plate with a RBI while Logan McNeil and Chase Fiddler each got a hit.
The bats got hot for Bartlesville in the second game as they run-ruled the Bandits. The Indians scored five of their eight runs in the bottom of the third inning to get their first win of the season. Brady Kokojan got the win on the mound as he pitched a two-hit shutout and struck out seven batters. Trevor Doyle led the Indians going 3 for 4 at the plate with 2 RBI's while Kokojan went 2 for 3 with 2 RBI's. David Wiseman, Bryce Short, Derek Hill, and Chase Hayes each got a hit.
