Justin Fulk, on the first pitch of his at-bat, drove one deep over the fence to give the Comets the lead. Helton reached base on a fielder's choice  as the Indians attempted to complete the double play with a throw to second for the out but Helton beat the throw to first as Bugger scored. Bugger reached base when he was hit by a pitch.

Altamont attempted a comeback in the seventh. Goeckner singled and advanced on a wild pitch. A ground out by Ziegler moved Goeckner to third. Finn got the credit for the RBI as a dropped fy ball scored Goeckner. Finn was caught trying to steal second base for the final out of the game.
