Ripon closed the scoring with single runs in the eighth and ninth before Bushur shut things down.
Oswald had three hits in the game while Tresemer, Kovach and Evan Mascitti each had two.
In game two the Buccaneers got just four hits while the Red Hawks scored twice in the first, fourth and sixth to get the split.
