All five runs scored by TCU were with two-out hits. Derek Odell singled in a run in the second and Jerrick Suiter added a two-run single in the third for a 3-0 lead.

Jason Coats pushed that lead to 5-0 with a two-run homer in the fifth against reliever Tom Timoney.

UNCW answered with single runs in the eighth and ninth innings. Matt Campbell plated a run in the eighth on an infield hit and Thomas Pope closed out the scoring with a RBI ground out in the ninth.
