In just his second game with the Bay Sox, Jeremiah Adams (US Military Academy) singled earning a leadoff base hit, bringing up Alex Brickman (University of Dayton) to the plate. On the third pitch of the at bat, Brickman hits a two run 'Brick' shot, making it just a two run game in the 7th. Sam Henrie (Southern New Hampshire) who went 2 for 3 on the night, tried to continue the Bay Sox rally, but fell short.
