Macalester battled back to tie the game at five in the top of the third, only to have the Pride answer back and grab the lead for good with a run in the bottom of the frame.

Starter Ryan White lasted four innings, allowing five runs, three earned, off seven hits. White picked up the victory. Brian Harris later came in to throw two innings of scoreless ball, giving up just two hits and striking out a pair.
