In game two, it was Muhlenberg County who jumped out early taking a 3-0 lead after three innings.   Pitching was strong for both teams as each struck out six in the low scoring game.    The Stallions tallied six hits in the game and committed no errors while Dubois County had four hits and two errors.   Those four hits for Dubois County came as Evan Kahre, Cooper Trinkle, John McDonald and Tanner Craig each collected one hit.

Luke Fitton was credited for the loss.   He lasted three innings, allowing four hits and three runs while striking out two.
