The Vikings split with the Bears losing the first game 12-6. Hayfield had twelve hits in the first game but the Bears held them to only six runs. The Bears led the Vikings 4-1 after three innings but they took a big lead after scoring eight runs in the fourth inning off of nine hits and two hit batters. Hayfield's bats woke up in the fifth inning. They had five hits. One of the hits was a two run homerun by Cam Rutledge which was Hayfield's first homerun of the season. Cole Kruger scored on a JB Stackhouse single to left field in the sixth inning. The Vikings would end the inning with runners on first and third.
