Cleanup hitter Logan Nixon then delivered a two-run double to score Crowson and courtesy runner Taylor Carlisle.

By the time the Gators were finished, Jacob Nixon and Travis Farmer had walked in front of Josh Long, who drilled a two-run single to score Logan and Jacob Nixon. Farmer's walk scored Davis.

Farmer scored on a squeeze play by Austin Davis, and Long reached home as Crowson was safe on a fielder's choice.
