Another two runs for Robert Morris came in the fourth inning as they went up 3-1. Judson did not fight back until a three-run fifth inning that gave them a one-run lead, 4-3. With two outs, England lifted a Robert Morris pitch over the center field fence to put Judson up 4-3. In the sixth inning, Stankus hit into a fielder's choice that scored Sensor and then Allison Catlett came in on the same play from a Robert Morris throwing error.
