The Mustangs (11-6-1, 4-6 CPL) scored both of their runs in the first on a Matt Goodheart (Arkansas) solo home run over the wall in left-center and an RBI single by Logan Fink (Kennesaw St).
After the HiToms (13-5, 4-5 CPL) scratched one across in the sixth to get on the board, left-hander Reid VanScoter (Coastal Carolina) entered for Martinsville.
