Trailing 1-0 in the fourth, Swanson hit a RBI single to score Jackie Reitmeyer tying the game at 1-1.
WSU (13-20, 8-2 HL) added two runs in the fifth and one in the sixth to move ahead 4-1. Hill doubled in the top of the seventh followed by a RBI double from Marciniak cutting the lead in half at 4-2 but that would be as close as Oakland would get.
