With two outs, Chase Goulette doubled and following a walk, Logan Harrah also doubled, scoring Goulette and putting the Oilers up 2-0 after the first inning.

The visiting team then was held scoreless as ODU tied the game at 2-2 in the second inning, scored a single run in the fourth, and scored two runs in the eighth.
