Baton Rouge could not get the bats going, managing six hits in game one. Blake Buller hit a solo home run in the third inning, it would be the lone run of the game for the Bears. Buller would pick up a second hit later in the game. Logan Rogers (two singles), Zachary Zimmer (single) and Devin Bailey (single) were the other Bears to get a hit.

Offense was not an issue for the Gators. San Jac recorded 16 hits en route to a 9-1 victory in game one.

Hits were a plenty to start game two. BRCC batted around to score seven runs on seven hits to take a big lead early against San Jacinto.

The Bears didn't stop there, by the end of the fourth inning, BRCC had eighteen hits and twenty-two runs had crossed the plate. Sophomore, John Schaffer, cruised to the victory for the Bears. He pitched six complete innings, giving up four runs on nine hits.
