The Bears had a few opportunities to score runs, but it wasn’t until the fourth inning when they put up their first run. A lead off single by Junior Michael Falco followed by a walk for Junior David Bermudez put runners in scoring position. Then Junior Brandon Rosenthal put down a bunt for a single to load up the bases. A few batters later Senior Christian Shelley brought in one run off of a single.

The Bears only got one run in the fourth inning but the following inning they added some insurance runs. Junior Brad Edwards hit a single then advanced to second on an error. Then Tyler Burnham helped himself out by hitting a double into center field scoring another run. A few batters later Brandon Rosenthal came up to the plate with runners on first and second. On the first pitch of the at-bat Rosenthal hit a fly ball to center that was good enough for a bases-clearing triple.

In the final inning Burnham put down the Vikings with a quick 1-2-3 inning.
