The Dolphins batted around in the second to plate seven runs, four coming on a grand slam by Stephen Klein. Delgado added a run in the third on an RBI double by Michael Stutes and a run in the fifth on a double by Brennan Lambert. Brayden Caskey reached on a single in the sixth before scoring on a homerun by Ethan Lege to give Delgado the 12-2 lead to secure the six inning, mercy rule win.
