North Central was held to three hits in the game, ended after eight innings. Crowder put the game out of reach in the bottom of the fourth inning, scoring four runs to expand their advantage to 6-0. Caleb Bounds went the first 4 2/3 innings for NCMC, and was saddled with the loss.

The win sends the second-seeded 'Riders into the second round, and a meeting with Mineral Area Community College on Thursday evening at 7 o'clock. Mineral Area, the #6 seed, sprung an upset win over #3 seed St. Louis in the opening round, 6-4.

North Central Missouri College will play St. Louis Community College in an elimination game at 1 o'clock on Thursday afternoon. Wednesday's two other first-round results were #1 seed Jefferson College over #8 seed St. Charles 4-2, and #5 seed Maple Woods over #4 seed Three Rivers, 4-3. Jefferson plays Maple Woods at 4 o'clock on Thursday, with St. Charles and Three Rivers in an elimination game at 10 o'clock Thursday morning. If NCMC defeats St. Louis on Thursday afternoon, the Pirates would advance to a second-round loser's bracket game at 10 o'clock on Friday morning. The Pirates would play the Jefferson/Maple Woods loser. One more loss in the tournament will end the NCMC baseball season.
