The River Bandits threatened in the 1st inning with 2 runners on when the Rock Hounds Mike Caterina made a fantastic catch in left field to end the rally.  Parsons than came in and pitched flawless in middle relief before Altman closed the game by striking out 6 of the 7 River Bandits he faced to seal the victory.

The game was scoreless until the 4th inning when Altman knocked in two runs with a double.
