In game one, the Gents scored a run in the first and another in the third to lead 2-0 heading into the bottom of the fourth, but five runs came across in that inning to blow things open. Two more runs scored in the fifth to make it 9-0 before Austin College got an RBI single from Justin Alphonse in the seventh.
