Colt Sedbrook singled and Shane Peterson reached on catcher's interference. They then both advanced on a balk before Xavier Scruggs came up with a double to score them both. Charlie Cutler followed with a single to move Scruggs to third. A wild pitch then allowed him to score.
However, Williamsport came back in the next inning to even things up. Arlon Quiroz and Myers both singled, then Susdorf had a RBI double. The other run came on a sacrifice fly that scored Myers. The game remained at a 3-3 standstill until the bottom of the 12th inning. Edwin Gomez started off the inning with a single. After Frederick Parejo was intentionally walk, Sedbrook singled through the right side to let Gomez come in to score to win the game.
