If the Eagles win Tuesday morning, they will have to play again at 7 p.m. The five-team tournament runs through Thursday with the winner advancing to the NAIA World Series next week in Lewistown, Idaho.

In Monday's loss, Judson gave up 5 runs in the second inning to fall behind 5-1 and could never recover. Fourth-seeded Point (33-25) tacked on single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings then scored 3 more in the seventh to put the game away.

Tony Ruggiero's home run was Judson's only extra-base hit of the game as the Eagles were limited to 7 hits. Tony Rallo had 2 hits and an RBI for Judson. Mark DeYoung and Frank Oliver also had RBI.

Andrew Bergman started and took the loss, lasting just 2 innings on the mound.
