After jumping out to a 3-0 lead, the Tigers (25-30) needed an insurance run in the bottom of the third to hold off the Blue Raiders (30-24). Tyler Fisher was hit by a pitch and advanced on a fielder's choice before Pete Thackston double to left center scored him.

It gave GC a 4-2 lead and LWC would rally one more time, but come up a run short to trail 1-0 in the best-of-three series. The two MSC rivals tangle again 4 p.m. Friday. If LWC wins that, a decisive game three will be played later that evening.

Dylan Grandon got the Tigers going with a double in the bottom of the second. Two outs later he scored on a single by Alex Smith. Taylor Hatfield followed with a walk. Back-to-back singles by Tanner Baldwin and Mike Steinke scored Smith and Hatfield to open the 3-0 lead.

The Blue Raiders (30-24) closed that gap to 3-2 off timely hitting from Heath Barnes and Garrett Helm.
Steinke led the Tigers going 3-of-4 with two RBI, while Joseph Willis led the Blue Raiders on 2-of-4 hitting with a RBI and a run scored. Kevin Rueff picked up the complete game win and Derek Cape suffered the loss.
