Tywan Mackey Jr. then ripped a triple to center, scoring Sanchez to get the Lions on the board.  Larry Sims was then hit by a pitch. With two outs, Ryan Mallison reached on an infield single to first, scoring Mackey, and pinch runner Davion White scored on an error as the Golden Lions took a 4-3 lead.

However, Prairie View A&M scored two runs in the top of the ninth to take the win.

Mallison went 2-for3 at the plate to lead UAPB. Justin Robinson and Nick Kreutzer also had hits for the Golden Lions.
