EC scored early when freshman Jake Sahagian hit a single, bringing in freshman right-fielder Jonathan Pasillas for the score.

The next run would come when freshman center-fielder Keyon Allen reached first on an error by the Cypress pitcher, which brought in sophomore catcher Joey Notch for the run.

The third run was earned when sophomore left-fielder Joseph Cortez hit a sacrifice fly to center-field, bringing in Sahagian for the score.

The Warriors would score again at the top of the sixth inning, when Jake Sahagian hit a double that would bring in Joey Notch for the run. The Warriors would score their final run when freshman second baseman Ricardo Serrano hit a single to bring in Sahagian.
