A-State got two runs back in the third, to pull within 8-3, when Sun Belt Preseason Player of the Year MacDonald ripped a two-run opposite field double to right center bringing across Drew Tipton and Eli Davis

Memphis posted a big first inning, tacking on seven runs, when it scored back-to-back runs on two A-State errors and Cale Hennenmann sent a two-out grand slam to left which built an 7-1 advantage over the Red Wolves. The home team added on another run in the second.
