In game two, RBIs from Cameron Wilson, Ben Marvin and Riley Schaefer (Thorndale/Thorndale) in the fourth, and a Rabinowitz two-run shot allowed the Bulldogs to erase a 6-0 deficit, trailing only 6-5 going into the sixth inning.

The Lutes tied up the game in the eighth inning as Cole Johnson doubled with a shot to right field, notching a pair of RBI. Tori Doten and Jacob Bockelie scored unearned runs in the ninth and gave PLU a 12-10 lead.

A sacrifice bunt by sophomore Austin Colon resulted in a throwing error, allowing the Bulldogs to bring in two runs. Colon scored the winning run for TLU with a shot to left center from Schaefer.

The Bulldogs collected 12 hits in game two and five hits in game one.
