On the 0-2 pitch, Vasquez hit a grounder to second that was enough for the runner on third, senior CF Stephen Vranka, to score. In the next at-bat, senior RF Casey Roche hit a 2-2 single into left-center to drive in redshirt sophomore SS Dylan Wolsonovich.

Pitt would add another run in the bottom of the sixth inning. With one out and runners on the corners, freshman C Manny Pazos hit a sac fly to RF in order to bring junior 3B Jordan Frabasilio.
