They would take the 2-0 lead when Alex Tucker hit an RBI single in the 4th. The teams exchanged runs in the 6th making the score 3-1. The Generals offense took off after that scoring 2 in the 7th inning and 2 in the 8th inning. They put up 1 more in the 9th and the game ended with the Generals winning 6-3.
