In the bottom of the 7thinning, shortstop Nick Loftin got his first run driven in of the season as he ripped an RBI double to right to tie the game at two.

The Mallards got a big two run shot from Jake Randa in the top of the 8thinning to give the team a 4-2 lead. The Mallards added one in the 9thand held on for the 5-2 win.
