The Knights would score the first run of the game in the second inning. Clayton Wells would hit a one out single and score on a Tristin Hayslett triple for a 1-0 lead.

In the third Mason Yentes would single before Rich hit a shot over the right field fence for a 3-0 lead. Huntington would get a run back in the fourth to make it 3-1, then score 3 more times in the fifth to take a 4-3 lead.

In the bottom of the sixth with two outs Wells would single and steal second. Hayslett would then come through again, hitting a single to left and scoring Wells to make it 4-4.

Huntington would score a run in the top of the seventh to set up the thrilling ending. With two outs Yentes would foul off four pitches before drawing a walk to bring Rich to the plate.
