Madison got the scoring going in the third inning jumping out to a 2-0 lead. Justice Bigbie and Timo Schau each drove in runs.

The Woodchucks responded in the top of the fourth scoring three runs to take a 3-2 lead. Byron Murray was a key part in the inning blasting a two-run homer for Wisconsin.

The Mallards answered back with three runs of their own in the bottom of the fourth. Nick Gile had an RBI double and later came around to score himself on a wild pitch opening up a 5-3 lead.
