In the next at-bat, senior first baseman Ryan Aljancic drove in Pickens on a 2-out RBI double to left field that put the Leopards in front 6-2. The double would prove to be the only extra base hit of the contest for either team.

Louisville tacked on two more runs in the bottom of the fifth. Morley walked to start the frame and later scored on a passed ball. Finally, Roberts drove in Adelman on a sacrifice fly to right field to put the Leopards ahead 8-2.
