The Ravens built up a lead in the 4th inning, loading the bases for Danny Favazza. Favazza hit an infield single that brought two runs home. Benedictine's next at-bat saw Pavlyak hit an RBI single, while Favazza then scored on a passed ball with two away.

In the next half inning, Dordt cut into their 5-1 deficit with a three-run inning. Nolan Christianson started with a leadoff single before coming around to score on a single by Cade Hollingsworth. With two runners on base, the Defenders sent the runners in motion as Anthony Rodriguez Klinzing hit a double to the fence, bringing in Edwards and Hollingsworth.
