Julian Ragosa scored another run, Nolan Gannon hit a 2 RBI single to bring in Collins and Noah Seitz. Nolan then scored off of a single from Leo Gannon to bring their run total to 5.

In the second inning, the White Sox extended their lead as Harrison Burbine hit an RBI single to help Ben Ragosa score and a 2 RBI double from Noah Seitz. The Marlins got only a single run from Max Murray due to the solid fielding from the White Sox. In the third inning, the White Sox red hot offense was stopped in their tracks because of great fielding from Carter Meyer, Michael Condron, and Jeremy Watson. The Marlins kept chipping at the lead as Freddy Meyer scored off of a double, hit by Peter Lennon.
After scoring no runs in the previous inning, the White Sox added to their lead with 3 more runs scored only to be matched by the Marlins who got 3 of their own. In the fifth inning, the Marlins had great defense and pitching to deny any run and the White Sox did the same highlighted by two great plays from Harrison Burbine.
Heading into the final inning the White Sox gave themselves a nice cushion with a double by Adam Fiorentino and a triple from Mitchell Collins to post 3 more runs. The Marlins looked to make a Hail Mary comeback but were denied by White Sox closer William Fiorentino and overall good fielding to finish the game in a 15-7 victory.
