Lehigh evened the score the following frame, using two singles and a stolen base.

The game was then a stalemate until  the sixth, when a pair of two-out errors gave the Mountain Hawks the go-ahead run. They added insurance in the next two frames, scoring twice in the seventh and three times in the eighth.
