In the sec­ond game, P.E.I. opened the scor­ing in the sec­ond in­ning as Sam Walsh drew a bases-loaded walk, forc­ing in Gallant who had sin­gled.

P.E.I. added to the lead in the fifth in­ning when Mor­ri­son was hit by a pitch, moved to third on a sac­ri­fice bunt and scored on Cole MacLaren’s base hit.

Brady Arse­nault pitched four in­nings to record the win with Colin Arse­nault pitch­ing the fi­nal three in­nings for the save. They com­bined to al­low only four hits.
