Fellow freshman Cody Jansen pitched 4.1 innings in relief giving up four runs on four hits and four walks while also striking out three.
The Panther offence had seven hits on the day. Leading the way was Senior Nate Hall (2-4, SB), sophomore Colin Willis (1 hit, RBI, HBP), junior Ched Gaskin (RBI, HBP), junior Greg Toliver (1 hit, RBI), and junior Brad Dubois (1 hit, RBI).
Both teams were sloppy defensively as PNC committed three errors and Madonna had five.
