MAU jumped out to a 3-0 lead thanks to a three run top of the second. Aaron Whitman singled home the first run of the game on a single. Two batters later, Colby Granger drove in two more with his single to center. Brattleboro responded with a four run bottom half of the inning, and held the lead for the remainder of the contest as Brattleboro secured an 8-5 victory.

In the second game, Patriots ace Connor Hannan drew the start. Hannan pitched 4 1/3 innings, allowing six runs (three earned) while striking out seven and walking four in a 11-1 Brattleboro win in six innings.
