The Horned Frogs brought the game to 4-3 after the top of the sixth inning, but it quickly slipped in the bottom of the sixth inning. Chris Elder came to the plate with the bases loaded, and Teddy Nowell took the mound for Trent Appleby. Elder went and hit a grand slam. Jantzen Witte added an RBI double in the top of the ninth for TCU, but far from enough to do anything.
