East Palestine scored three runs in the failed comeback on a single by Dalton Vance, and a single by Cooper Vance.

He surrendered two runs on six hits over five innings, striking out 12 and walking one. Garrett Cox and Justin Sweeney entered the game out of the bullpen and helped to close out the game in relief. Sweeney recorded the last three outs to earn the save for Lisbon.

Sean Helpy took the loss for East Palestine. He allowed eight hits and six runs over one and two-thirds innings, striking out one.  Zion Figley was exceptionally impressive in relief, controlling Lisbon hitters and giving his team a chance with the sticks in the 6th and 7th innings.
