The Bombers came from behind in the fifth to take a 3-2 lead on RBI-singles from Jordan Getzelman (Menlo College) and Alex Howard (Arkansas State University).
Howard would lead the team offensively going 3-4 with the RBI, his fourth multi-hit game.
The Rivets (15-11) would tie the game in the bottom half of the fifth on an RBI-single from Eric Cole (Arkansas).
