The Indians bats were alive as well. The biggest hit of the night came from senior slugger, Jacob Moore, who came to the plate in the bottom of the 6th inning with the game tied up 3 - 3, and smacked a single to right field, knocking in 2 Indians to take the lead for good, 5 -3. Wells helped his own cause with 2 hits on the night, while Moore, Cam Luster, (Sr), Gavin Teeter, (Sr), Josh Crawford, (Sr), and Cole Hughes, (Jr), each added one hit. Hughes's hit being a deep double to right field.
