With one out, Julian Rip hit another extra base hit (a double) and scored on Max Kops’ single to right field. A series of singles by Delano Selassa, Ruendrick Piternella, and Diamond Silberie drove in three runs. After Tyriq Kemp drew a walk, Yurdion Martie hit a three-run shot to left field. 
With runners on first and second and two outs in the sixth, Diamond Silberie singled up the middle to drive in Max Kops from second for the game-ending run.
