The Knights had runners on second and third with two outs as the Builders brought in closer Sam Massie who got a flyout to right field which ended the threat.

GAME 2: The Knights scored first on a sacrifice fly from Jacob Kiser to score Sigmon who opened the game with a double. The Builders matched that run in the bottom of the first as with one out Brock Harris walked and Aldridge followed with a double to move him to third. Junior Christian Burton followed with a single through the right-side of the infield to score Harris.
Danville pushed a run across in the fourth, but the Builders answered with a two-spot in the bottom of the fifth as Harris drove in one with a single and an unearned run gave the hosts a 7-2 lead.
An unearned run in the top of the seventh for Danville was all that was left as the Builders took the twin bill from the Knights.
