The Crosscutters scored three in the second to take a 4-1 lead with the first two scoring on a successful double steal and a wild pitch. Center fielder Nemo Wright came through with an RBI single later in the inning.

Trenton scored a single run in each of the second and third innings to make it a 4-3 game. Both teams traded runs again in the sixth inning to make it a 5-4 game. Second baseman Jesse Hall hit an infield single to bring in a run. Williamsport added another run in the top of the seventh from a run scoring on a groundout by shortstop Travis Holt to extend the lead to 6-4.

Blake Svoboda came on in the eighth with two outs and runner son second and third. He forced a lineout to end the inning and came back for the ninth for a three-up, three-down inning to close out the victory.
