The second game of the double-header was closer for the Panthers, as they came out swinging and had a 3-2 lead until the ninth inning.

Unfortunately for Greenville, Webster refused to go down easily and they had a ninth inning come back, scoring three runs to earn the 5-4 win. Offensively, Ryan Smith hit a homer for two GC RBI and Hunter Bryan and Dylan Goldsmith each earned an RBI. Josh Wagemann, Nick Bifano, and Scott Voyles all saw time on the mound, with Voyles recording the loss.
