In the second game of the conference doubleheader with Connersville, FC, the visiting team on the scoreboard, came out on top 7-1 to end the regular season. Alex Bischoff started the game for FC, but with sectional approaching, came out after 2 innings of shutout pitching due to pitch count limit. Grant Smith pitched the final 5 innings to get the win, allowing just 1 run that came in the bottom of the 7th inning.

Offensively, Logan Winters, Grant Smith, and Trevin Manderschied all had 2 hits games. Blake Ripperger, Winters and Smith each knocked in 2 runs.
