In the bottom of the third, Lambda Chi sent a runner home on an error by Pike’s third baseman, putting them ahead 4-3.

Pike was able to answer once more in the 6th inning with one run on two hits, but a pop fly to left field ended the game.
Lambda Chi earned 18 hits, while Pike could only deliver 12.
