Both pitchers went the distance and gave their teams an opportunity to win, but it was Shippensburg's solid defense and a number of outs on the base paths by Blue Devils runners that led to the Greyhounds victory.

Shannon stranded a runner at 2B in the 1st and 6th innings and the Blue Devils were Myles Gaymanthrown out attempting to stretch singles into doubles in the 3rd and 4th innings. Conversely, Shippensburg scored a run in the first on a walk, a sacrifice bunt and an RBI groundout by Shannon. The Greyhounds recorded four of their seven hits off of Gayman in the 3rd and 4th innings to score three more times.

2015 SS Nate Reiner led Shippensburg offensively going 2-for-3 with an RBI. Gayman led the Greencastle-Antrim attack with a 2-for-3 night, including a double and two RBI.

Shannon allowed seven hits while striking out five. Gayman allowed six hits and struck out five.
