The second game looked better for the Builders. Saint Mary added the first runs of the game in the second to take the lead 2-0.
In the third Southwestern made their stand scoring 3 runs to steal the lead.
The score remained until the Spires strung hits together to tie it up at 3 all in the sixth.
Saint Mary put the Builders into a tough situation after they plated three runs on two Southwestern errors.
