In the fourth inning, Southeast got runs from Harper, Overby, Linton, and Jay Butler. The Tigers took a 9-1.
In the final inning, Michael Anderson reached on a error, and Harper doubled him in to make the score 10-1. Clay McRee later scored to make the score 11-1.
Phillip Butler pitched four innings to take the win. Butler allowed two hits and fanned four batters. Trevor Horn pitched the fifth inning for the Tigers to seal the decision.
The Tigers were led offensively by Overby with three runs scored, Butler was 2-for-3 with a double and a homer, Anderson with a double, McRee with a single, and Harper with a double.
