In the 10th, Bryant Prather gave the Rams the advantage with a two RBI single. ASU added one more in the inning with a bases loaded fielder's choice.

The Golden Rams made quick work of the Canes in their half of the 10th, registering two quick outs and finishing the game with a groundout to first.
