Travis Williamson finished 4-for-4 with 4 RBI, 2 doubles and 1 home run, while Cody Barber and Derek Bourgeois each added a pair of hits for the Rams, who broke the game open with a 7-run 2nd inning.
In that 2nd inning, the Rams sent 11 hitters to the plate, tallied 5 hits and were helped by a pair of AUM errors. Williamson had a pair of doubles in the frame with 1 RBI and 1 run scored, and a pair of Rams scored on an errant throw from AUM's Justin Williams.

AUM struck first with a tally in the 2nd inning on a RBI-infield single from Charles Lester, but AUM left six runners on over the first 3 frames to keep Mobile in the game. The Rams tied it up with some small ball in the 3rd, using a hit-batsman, sac bunt, wild pitch and sac fly to score.
Will Sellers put AUM back in the lead with a pinch hit home run in the 4th, and then a leadoff error by the Rams in the 6th gave AUM a 3-1 lead. In the bottom of the 6th, Mobile put a pair on with only 1 out and loaded the bases with 2 outs, but only got one run, when Halverson was hit by a pitch to force home Brady King.
