The Eagles rallied again in the third when Garrett Ball singled and moved to second when Dylan Azevedo was hit by a pitch. AJ Cipolla sacrificed them over to second and third. Muth hit a ground ball to second to score Ball and give AG a 2-0 lead. After Brown walked, Tyler Auerbach clubbed a 2-run double off the right field wall to score Azevedo and Brown and put the Eagles ahead 4-0 after three.
The Eagles added another run in the fourth when Ball hit a sacrifice fly to right field to score Davidson, who doubled to lead off the inning. Davidson led the Eagles with 3 hits. AG tallied 11 hits overall as Ball and Paul Ormonde had 2 hits apiece.
