The first five hitters of the inning singled for Beloit, while Cobie Vance had a two-run double for the inning's big blow.

After the Hot Rods scored twice in the third to take a 7-5 lead, the Snappers bounced back again, this time scoring three times in the sixth inning to lead 8-7, with a John Jones two-run double tying the game.

The lead was short-lived, as the Hot Rods scored the tying run in the bottom of the inning, but the Snappers scored the game's deciding run when Jones walked with the bases loaded to make it 9-8.
