UNC's Andrew Miller had been slated to start the Tuesday, June 28th game against Wareham, but with that game fogged out, Miller had two extra days of rest. The Tarheel allowed one run on a sacrifice fly in the 3rd inning, scattering four hits over seven innings. With Miller's typical combination of sliders and mid-nineties fastballs, he kept Mariners hitters off balance, striking out six while never facing more than four batters in an inning, walking only one. Brooks Brown from UGA and Derrik Lutz from GWU completed the game for Miller throwing 1-2-3 8th and 9th innings respectively. The hard throwing duo lead the team in appearances with five each, with Lutz picking up three saves.
Trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the 3rd, the A's scored four runs on five hits in the bottom of the frame, sending 10 men to bat. After a leadoff walk to Pepperdine's Adrian Ortiz and an infield hit from Mississippi's Alex Presley, Baron Frost (USC) could not get a bunt down. However, two wild pitches from Mulvey not only allowed the runners to advance, but one run to come home. Frost then singled to score Presley from third. Chris Coghlan (Mississippi) singled hard to right moving Frost to second with one out. With two outs, two more runs scored when a ground ball from Jacob Dempsey (Winthrop) led to a throwing error from Harwich shortstop Arman Sidhu. Chris Coghlan picked up his second hit of the night leading off the 5th inning, a solo home run, his first for the A's. Nick Derba was hit by a pitch in the 8th and scored the final A's run after another Harwich error. Final score: Chatham 6, Harwich 1.
