Takahashi was relieved by Sam Lewis, who pitched allowed just walk in a scoreless sixth inning. Tyler Mark followed and pitched a hitless, scoreless seventh inning, though he walked the first batter he faced, threw a wild pitch in the midst of walking the second, then struck out the next batter he faced and caught the runner at second trying to steal third, then walked the third batter of the inning, only to get another well timed strikeout to get out of the jam.

Damien Magnifico closed out the ninth, allowing a hit, a walk, and striking out a batter in a scoreless ninth.

After Montgomery tied it up in the bottom of the third, it wouldn’t be until the top of the fifth inning that Jackson answered back with five runs. After Dominic Miroglio and Galli Cribbs Jr singled, Ben DeLuzio walked to load the bases. Daulton Varsho grounded into a force out with Miroglio out at home. Jamie Westbrook then singled, scoring Cribbs and DeLuzio. Pavin Smith would next come up short and line out, but Andy Young would come through with a double, scoring Varsho and Westbrook. Jazz Chisholm then reached on a fielding error, scoring Young to put the Generals up 6-1. In the top of the ninth, Jamie Westbrook and Pavin Smith walked, and Andy Young singled to load the bases with one out.
