Barker had jumped out to an early 5-0 lead after two innings but Lockport 1 rallied to knot the contest in the fourth.

A two-run triple by Brad Wilson put Barker back up 7-5 in the fifth but Lockport again answered with a pair of tallies in the top of the seventh to briefly retie the contest at 7-7.

Four players – Eddie Wasnock, Kyle MacDonald, Chauncy Mckee and Snell – shared in the pitching chores for Barker. Wasnock pitched the first three innings striking out 5.
