Trailing 3-1 in the bottom of the third, the Dogs exploded for seven runs, capped off by Tyler Ladendorf's third home run of the series, to take an 8-3 lead. Subsequent three-run jacks from K.C. Hobson and Joey Terdoslavich put Chicago ahead, 14-4, through five innings. Casey Crosby and Paul Schwendel then held off a late Winnipeg charge, as the Dogs took Game One of the doubleheader, 14-11.
