Williams rallied with three in the ninth as David Kwan had a sacrifice fly and Adam Regensburg smacked a two-run triple with two outs. 

The Ephs had 11 hits in the loss. Adam Dulsky went 3 for 4 with two runs scored. Regensburg was 2 for 4 with two RBI. Senior Dan Smith got the start and the loss for the Ephs going 3 1/3 innings and allowing three hits, two runs, one earned, while walking three and striking out two.

The Ephs scored twice in the ninth when Nathan Michalski lined an RBI-single and Adam Panstares hit into a double play. They finished with seven hits. Beau Horan was 2 for 3 and Michalski finished 2 for 4 with an RBI.
