The two runs posted in the first frame by South Dearborn was repeated in both the second and third innings.  In the second, a Tobie Teke triple and a Getz single each generated a run.  Then in the third, Adam Dixon drove in one on a sacrifice fly and McClane scored on a throwing error.

Rushville was held scoreless in the second but enjoyed its best scoring inning in the third as Aaron Duncan brought home two teammates on a double and Gage Rosenfeld later scored Duncan on an RBI two bagger.  It was 6-4 Knights after three innings.

SD scored in every inning including a single run in the fourth. Dixon walked with the bases loaded which plated Tyler Sloan.

The Lions drew within a run in the home fourth, 7-6, on a 2-RBI single by Springman.

Now down 13-6, RCHS scored its final run in the home fifth as Rosenfeld led off with a walk and later scored on a wild pitch.
