In the third inning, the Prospects added another run to close the gap in the score.  In the third inning, the Rams brought in a relief pitcher who was tagged for two more runs by the Prospects, bringing them within  3 runs of the Rams. 

In the sixth inning, the Rams added their final run, and the last score of the game, on a single, an error and a passed ball.  This gave the Rams the 9-5 win as the Prospects went down on three strikeouts in the 7th inning.
