Jonathan Quintana (Barry University) led the way for Madison's offensive outburst, going 3-for-3 with three runs batted in, two runs scored and a walk drawn. Anthony Gonsolin (St. Mary's College) chipped in with his first home run of the season and two runs scored in the winning effort, while J.J. Gould (Jacksonville University) plated three runs and scored twice on his way to a 3-for-5 batting line.

Nate Hoffmann (Middle Tennessee State) received his first start of the season, allowing just one earned run on two hits, one walk and four strikeouts across five strong innings. Scott Moss (Florida), Tyler Frowirth (Minnesota State), Vince Arobio (Pacific) and Mike Kaelin (Buffalo) combined for four scoreless frames of relief and seven strikeouts out of Madison's bullpen.
