Wyland tried to help his cause going 2-for-4 at the plate with two runs scored. Matt Young was 2-for-3 with one RBI while Nate Grove was 2-for-4 with a RBI as well. Dave Meldrum had the other two Mountaineer RBI.

Mansfield led 3-1 entering the bottom of the fourth inning when the Huskies picked up three runs to take a 4-3 lead. The Mountaineers tied the game in the fifth inning but Bloomsburg would respond in the bottom of the sixth with two runs to seal the victory.

With the loss, the Mansfield drops to 11-15 overall and falls below .500 in the PSAC East at 4-6 while Bloomsburg improves to 12-19 overall and 5-5 in the East.
