The Chucks were the visiting team because of a venue switch since McKinley Field in Brookville was unplayable. Five hits came in the second inning off Raiders starter Dane Lyle, including run-scoring singles by Addison Neal and Tyler Richardson. Isaac Stouffer doubled in a run while Logan Johnston singled in a run off new pitcher Brady Caylor.

Punxsutawney added runs in the third and fifth innings. Richardson, Brandon Matthews, Johnston, Derek Huey and Neal each had two hits.

On the mound, the Chucks used three pitchers with Johnston, Huey and Daren Byers. Huey threw the middle three innings to get the win, allowing five hits, one run and two walks while striking out three.

Brady Caylor and Seth Dunkle each had two hits for the Raiders, who loaded the bases in three of the first four innings but scored one run. Dunkle had both runs batted in.

Lyle took the loss, giving up five hits and six runs in 1 2/3 innings.
