James Ramsey cut the Montgomery lead with his third home run since joining the club to make it 3-1 in the fifth.

In the eighth with one out Edgar Corcino ripped his second hit of the night to left. That was followed by a Chris Paul double that cut the margin to one run. Andy Wilkins belted a deep double to center and Paul was the thrown out trying to score to tie the game. It would be the Lookouts last base hit.
