Jeremy Hale and Logan Manthey each walked and Wes Long was hit by a pitch to load the bases with nobody out. Eli Allen walked, scoring Hale. Matt Croft also walked and Manthey came home to score on a wild pitch to put Priceville up 6-1.
Jaime Epperly relieved Myrex, but not before the Bulldogs scored two more runs. Rand Hutchison hit a sacrifice fly to score Allen and Croft came home to score later on a Good Hope error.
Dustin Chambers pitched the win, working six innings and striking out four. He also finished 2-for-4 at the plate, including a home run. Kyle Bunnell was 2-for-3 and Lance Hughes had a solo home run in the second inning.
