The Griffons claimed both games with 8-3 and 8-1 scores.

Missouri Western scored half of its runs of game one in the first inning, Northwest answered with three runs to make it a one-run game after the 40-minute first frame. The Griffons added a pair of runs in the fifth and sixth innings and held the Bearcats to two hits in the final six innings.
