Harrison Moore’s single allowed Zac Taylor to move to third base as he got on base with two outs. The scoreless tie was broken by the Slammers in the top of the 6th inning. Korry Howell and Andrew Shaps started the inning with a single. Zack Kirtley’s sacrifice fly to the right allowed Howell to score.

The pinch-hit appearance of Pat Adams brought the lead to 3-0 for the Slammers in the top of the 7th inning. Until the 7th inning, the Herd had no other baserunners apart from Ryan Stacy’s single in the first inning. The struggle of the Herd to get runners on the base continued throughout the game.
