In the second game, Tabor again led 1-0 after one inning, but the Coyotes broke loose for four runs in the top of the second.

The Bluejays pulled within one 4-3, in the bottom of the inning and then tied the game in the third.

Kansas Wesleyan followed with three runs in the fourth and two more in the fifth to take a 9-5 lead after four and a half innings.
