After Chris Corbeil got the Excelsiors on the board, Beirnes and Colin Doyle added to the Chiefs lead.
In the second period, Randy Staats netted a pair of goals, while Jeff Shattler, Beirnes, Dand Dhane Smith added one each.
Connor Daly and Joe Resetarits responded for the home team.
The Chiefs kept rolling in the third period, with Dhane Smith, Jon Sullivan, Beirnes and Stephen Keogh adding to the lead.
Dillon Ward was back between the Chiefs pipes and was at times spectacular making 46 saves. Tyler Carlson took the loss for the Excelsiors in a 24-save effort.
Game 5 of the series is 8pm Thursday at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena.
