Jack Omstead got things going with a single, advanced to second on a Willie Hotta fielders choice then scored on Jacob Martins RBI single. Next, Brendan Nieva and Matt Correia were both hit by pitches, which loaded the bases and set the stage for a clutch two RBI double by Cameron Mahler. Cameron's blast to left field gave the Terriers a 3-2 lead.
Jacob Martins picked an RBI in the sixth for an insurance run. Ryan Giberson scored the fourth Terrier after he had singled and stole second.
