The Spikes got on the board first, and then added a pair of insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth to win 4-1.
West Virginia was held to just six hits, but also left six runners on base.
Catcher Kyle Wilkie was the only Black Bear hitter to have a multi-hit performance.
The series finishes up Sunday before West Virginia returns home for a three-game series starting Tuesday.
