In the second game of the series, the Pirates swept the 49ers, winning 5-4 on the road. The Pirates led 9-2 in the fifth inning, and a three-run home run by Josh Madole and Will Cunningham tied the game at nine.

In the first game of the series, Southern Miss tied the game with two runs in the fourth inning, and then scored a run in the fifth inning to tie it.
