Scott pitched a complete game, seven innings, with just two hits allowed. He struck out nine and walked two.

Tanner Lemaster started and pitched four innings for the Blue Lions. He allowed four hits with one earned run. He struck out seven and walked two.

A.J. Dallmayer pitched three innings for Washington, with six hits and four runs (one earned) with one strikeout and two walks.

Hillsboro scored what turned out to be the only run they would need in the top of the fourth.

They then scored one in the fifth and three more in the sixth.

For the Blue Lions, Karson Runk hit a single to lead off the bottom of the fourth. Runk and later Titus Lotz, who had walked, reached second base, but, they would not score.
