Hamel jumped to an early lead in the third inning when they put together three runs on one hit, two errors, two hit-batsmen, and a sacrifice. A double play stopped the rally. In the top half of the third, Streeper's threatened to score as Chiado opened the inning with a double. With one out, Purcell singled to center and went to second on the throw to third, but both men were left stranded as Simms and Astroth filed out.
