The Huskies scored their lone run of the game in the sixth as Tony Monroy (Georgetown) came around to score on an error and give the Huskies a 1-0 lead.

Honkers starting pitcher Zak Devermann (Illinois) took a no-decision despite tossing a gem. The left-hander worked eight innings giving up one run on three hits and struck out four. The run was not an earned run. Connor McCollum (Colorado Christian) picked up his first win of the year after working a scoreless ninth inning.   

Huskies relief pitcher Kieran Shaw (Harvard) was tagged with his second loss of the summer. Shaw pitched a 1/3 of an inning giving up two runs on two hits.
