Holding onto a two-run lead, Manchester responded with a six-run inning to break the game open on its way to a 10-2 win.

With one out and the bases loaded, Manchester rattled off four consecutive hits, plating six runs. It started with a Max Brownlee single, scoring one. Jack McCoy followed with a single and RBI of his own. Next, Trevor Greene doubled to left field, driving in two more runs. Sam Steinman kept the momentum going with a two RBI double of his own.
