Aaron White went all 10 innings for the Shelby win. White struck out 4, walked eight, gave up 10 hits, and six runs. White was good late. After giving up all six of the St. Anthony runs in the first three innings, White shut out the home team for the next seven innings to gut out the win.

Ben Hect, the St. A starter went seven innings, with 10 strikeouts, six walks and six hits, but gave up the 3-run, game-tying rally and was pulled. Zack Gardewine came in and took the loss, striking out four in three innings, while walking six.
