The first two batters popped out to the catcher but with two out Corunna scored 5 runs. Three straight walks and a pass ball gave Corunna 1 run then Jordan Pavey hit a two run double to tie the game. Zach Sutherland walked and Mark McLachlin then hit a 3 – 2 pitch off the fence in right field for a two run triple to give Corunna an 8 – 6 lead. In the top of the 6th inning Kyle Smith struck out the side to preserve the win for the Giants.
The game called after six innings due to darkness.
