Nevada cut the lead in half with a pair of runs in the top of sixth on two hits. Leo Radkowski started the inning by reaching on an error and came around to score on Ryan Foley's RBI triple. Center Durell Williams followed with an RBI single to make the score 4-2.

The Cardinal got one back in the bottom of the sixth as Nevada made its third error of the game.
