The Roadrunners would win both games by a score of 15-6 in 8 innings in game one and 2-0 in a shortened 4.5 innings in game two due to visibility issues caused by the setting sun.

Patriks Ludviks pitched 1 inning in relief allowing 0 runs, 0 hits and 2 strikeouts. Caden Fischer pitched 2 innings allowing 1 run on 2 hits with 1 strikeout.
Offensively, Tye Carrier went 1 for 2 with a single and 2 runs scored. Tyler Hummel 2 for 4 with a single and a triple while scoring one run. Avery Deisroth was 1 for 1 with a walk and 1 RBI. Eric Machej (’24 Illinois State commit) went 1 for 4 with an RBI single. Quincy Jenkins (’26 uncommitted) was 0 for 2 with 2 RBI and played solid at shortstop.
