After getting a strike them out, throw them out double play to end the top of the 5th, the Potters would regain the lead in the bottom half to make it a 3-2 game. In the top of the 6th, some shaky Potter defense would help lead the Force to a 4-run 6th inning. The Potters have never been out of a game all year and that wouldn't change today, as they'd get 2 runs back in the bottom of the 7th on a double from Trey Furrey and a sac fly from Isiah Garcia. Matt Voelker would strike out 3 in the 8th inning to keep the Potter momentum going into the bottom half of the inning.

Isiah Garcia would single home another run and Jarred Gibson walked with the bases loaded to make it a 9-6 game.

Matt Voelker took the win and the Potters improve to 16-4 on the season.
