In Game 4, the Gray bounced back for an easy 9-0 win, scoring five runs in the 2nd inning and four runs in the 5th. Junior infielder Luke Duncan went 4-for-4 for Gray and freshman Bobby Akin chipped in with two hits. Senior lefty Joe Ochs picked up the win.

The Gray is managed by volunteer assistant Bobby Segal.
