The Cane Cutters take advantage of four walks in the bottom of the third to even the score at 2-2 as the teams head to the top of the fourth. Both teams would get solid pitching in the middle innings as the score would remain ties as the Generals head to the top of the eighth.
In the eighth, the Generals would take advantage of a dropped third strike as Michael Morissette would beat the throw to first with one out in the inning. Several wild pitches would advance Morissette to third with one out as Kyle Boudreaux would hit a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring Morissette giving the Generals a 3-2 lead.
Generals would carry the lead into the bottom of the ninth as Kasey Kalich would come in for the save as the Generals would get the win 3-2 to sweep the series.
