Barrett Kiser struck out three and walked only one in three innings to improve his record to 4-0. Will Moak was credited with the save.

After Central Hinds scored twice in the bottom of the fourth inning to take a 3-2 lead, Huntington took the lead for good by scoring twice in the top of the fifth and added three more runs in the top of the sixth to complete the scoring.
