With the score 4-1 in the top of the fifth, the Black Sox got 2 quick outs, but the Knights were not to be denied. Ryan Eskridge started the offense with a walk. A Sean McGuire single and a Billy Vogt walk loaded the bases for the hot hitting Tommy Reilly and he did not disappoint. A 3 run game tying double followed.
After the Black Sox regained the lead in the bottom of the inning, John Bosch re-tied the score with a lead off homerun to straight away center, unfortunately for the Knights that was the last run the could muster. The Black Sox took back the lead with 2 runs on 2 hits in the bottom of the sixth and that was how it ended.
* Manager Paxton Provitera continued his strikeout or walk streak with a perfect 3 for 3 in K's...let's not make him have to hit anymore!!!
