Lancaster (4-2) had not led heading into the eighth inning with the game tied 3-3. Vince Fernandez led off the frame with a fly ball double, capping off a 4-for-4 night at the plate. He would score later in the frame on an RBI single by Alan Trejo, putting the JetHawks up a run. Trejo scored on a Manny Melendez sac fly to make it 5-3.
