In the second game the Saints’ offense came out to play as they scored 14 runs while Bill Brancatella went the distance as well, striking out 14, as CSJ won 14-1. Kevin Rodriguez had three hits, while Nestor Velazquez and Colin McLeod had two. Justin Lemanski added four RBIs and a double as well.

The third game was a tight one as the Saints were able to hold on to a 2-1 victory. Nick Burch threw a complete game with 14 strikeouts as he was dominant for all seven of his innings. Teddy Mercado had a single in the fourth to drive in two runs, which would be just enough for the win.

With two outs and Nick Rodriguez on second base, Lemanski singled into left field as Rodriguez scored to tie the game up 8-8.
