In the first game on Sunday the Giants took a 2 - 0 win over the Majors. Jeremy Devereaux went the distance on the mound and allowed three hits, walked one allowed no runs and struck out four.  It wasn't until the top of the fourth inning when the Giants scored two runs to take the lead and eventual win.

In the fourth, Joe Stock hit a single to advance to first base then later stole second.  Keenan Smith singled to right field brought Stock home.  Smith worked his way around the bases on a sacrificed fly by Mark McLachlin and a single by Nolan Nicholson.  Lauchie MacDonald brought Smith home on a single to center field.

Both teams recorded one loss apiece and with the tournament double knockout ruling the two teams had to face each other one more time to decide the Championship.
