Eammon Portice puts in a yeamon's effort in relief, throwing 4 shutout innings, allowing only 2 hits and 2 walks, while striking out 3. In the top of the 9th he allowed a leadoff walk to Justin Christian, Austin Krum followed with a flyout to center. Marcos Vechionacci singled to center putting the go-ahead run in scoring postion until Austin Romine grounded into the inning-ending 5-4-3 double play.

In the bottom of the 9th Jose Iglesias grounded out to short to start the inning. Chih-Hsien Chiang hit a sharp liner to right field for out number two. Nate Spears was hit by a pitch and Che-Hsuan Lin executes a hit-and-run to perfection, hitting it in the hole that the second baseman left wide open while going to cover 2nd base. Ryan Kalish is intentionally walked, and rightfully so, as he is 3 for 4 on the day with some hard hits. Luis Exposito comes up with the bases juiced and a chance to play hero...but he hits a dead ball pop up to the shortstop, ending the potential game-winning rally.

We're going to extra baseball ya'll!
