Strobel and Lester would draw back to back walks to start the fourth before Strobel scored on a passed ball and Lester a fly ball from Roberts to make it 7-0.

In the fifth Marcum would walk. With two outs Strobel would be hit by a pitch before Lester was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Marcum would then score on a passed ball before Meyer singled home Carter Bedke to make it 9-0. Justin Self would follow with a walk off single that scored Lester for the 10-0 win.
