- The Lizzies answered back with four in the bottom of the first to tie the affair 4-4.
- In the top of the second, the Giants got it going when Rory (11) whacked a RBI double to bring Jeremy (15) home and extend the lead to 5-1.
- The Giants shutdown the Lizzies in the bottom of the second with some spectacular pitching by Leo (7).
- In the third, the Giants started the inning with three walks. James (4) followed and drove in a pair with a 2 RBI single. After a couple more walks, Ethan (2) drove in the fourth and final run of the inning.
- The Lizzies made a game attempt to come back in the bottom of the third, but was stopped on a Gold Glove defensive gem by Giants shortstop Ethan (5), who scooped up a grounder and threw it to third baseman Rory (11) for the force out.
