Defensively Bombers did not commit a fielding error with Rylend Callicutt shining in centerfield. The play of the game came in the bottom of the seventh with two outs and the potential winning run on third. The ball was scorched down the first base line and Colin Fragale made a diving catch to send the game to extras.

The Bombers grabbed a quick first inning lead on a fielder’s choice by Seefeldt, a single by Callicutt, and a single by Albee.
