After the game was scoreless through the first five-and-a-half innings, Southern Maryland got on the board in the sixth. A solo shot by Jeremy Owens to leftcenter gave the Blue Crabs a one-run advantage.

The Bluefish tied the contest in the eighth .Luis Rodriguez walked with one out and advanced to second on a single by Pedro Lopez. Eddie Rogers followed with an RBI single to leftcenter to tie the contest at one.

The teams were held off the scoreboard until the tenth when Bridgeport came up with three runs. With a runner at second base, Lopez singled to center to break the tie. Rogers followed with a two-run shot in the next at-bat. His homer to left gave the Bluefish a three-run advantage.

Southern Maryland cut the margin down to two when Owens doubled with runners at first and second. After the extra-base hit, with runners in scoring position, Paco Figueroa walked and Chin-Lung Hu singled to right to score the first runner; but Owens was gunned out at the plate by Collin DeLome. The bases were re-loaded on a walk before Brian Barton and Mike Daniel struck out against Bluefish reliever Jonah Bayliss to end the game.

Bridgeport starter, Paul Oseguera, worked seven frames and gave up one run on three hits and a walk. The southpaw struck out five in his outing. Oseguera was relieved by Joe Bateman who tossed an-inning-and-a-third of scoreless ball. The righthander walked one and struck out three.
