The ECC Baseball Falcons (21-10) atoned for their two losses to North Central with two huge wins the following day behind a great performance in the field and at the plate by Cory Chostner. Chostner homered in the third and fourth innings in the 10-5 first victory of the day. He collected three RBIs in both games for total of six as well as providing spectacular defense in center field robbing the Pirates of at least one home run and a number of other hits.

Joey Reichmuth had two RBI in the first game and Matis Crouwel went 3 for 4 with two runs scored.

Billy Underwood earned the win for the Falcons striking out four batters and allowing five runs on 7 hits.

The second game went in favor of the Falcons 17-7 with the hit parade going through the line up at the top  of the order as the first four batters saw five turns at the plate.  Jackson Kirn, DeVon Jennings, and Hayden Cook collected 2 RBIs each. While Chostner was joined by Landen Roberts in driving in three runs each on three hits.

The street behind Burleigh Grimes Field was littered with bouncing baseballs as the Falcons launched four shots over the fence. Jennings, Chostner, Roberts and Jose Alfonso also smacked balls out of the park in the small confines.

Jack Meyer went two innings earning the win striking out three batters, while Starling Beverding and Anthony Broeker came into the game in relief. Broeker threw one and two-thirds innings allowing no runs.
