Plymouth was the No. 1 seed and Manitowoc, No. 2, by virtue of their first- and second-place finishes, respectively, in the regular season. Plymouth was the regular season champion with a 13-1 record. The teams split their two regular-season meetings.

Plymouth trailed 7-1 but rallied for five runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to cut the Ships’ lead to 7-6. Manitowoc pulled away by scoring four runs in the sixth to mount an 11-6 lead.

The Plymouth team left several runners on base which hurt their hopes for a victory.
