David Thomas (Winston-Salem, NC) tripled to leadoff the opener and scored on a single by Matt Kepley (Greensboro, NC) as Catawba went on top 1-0. Tampa benefited from a Tribe error in the first and tied the score on a two-out hit by Roberto Mena (Rio Grande, PUERTO RICO).
The Spartans took the lead in the second with two runs, one off a sacrifice fly and the second on a Tribe error.
