Roy-Hart cut the deficit to 2-1 in the second on a wild pitch after three walks loaded the bases. Wasnock though got out of further trouble with a clutch inning ending strikeout.
Somerset got that run back with interest by scoring twice in the third on a wild pitch and a fielders choice play off the bat of Logan Harris. A single by Kyle MacDonald helped set up that threat.
Roy-Hart pulled to with 4-2 with a run in the third on a fielders choice play and later got a runner to third in the seventh after a triple by Seddon but Wasnock again notched a clutch strikeout to end the threat and the game.
