The Trojans took a two-run lead into the seventh inning after a pair of RBI singles in the bottom of the sixth made it 4-2.

Jefferson City got the tying run aboard in the top of the seventh after a one-out triple by Jackson Koch and a walk from Jordan Martin. Both came around to score after a two-out, two-base error.
