Husson would remain scoreless until the top of the fourth, when Christian Corneil hit a one-out triple to get on base. Adam Wilson then hit him home on a sacrifice fly to tie the score up 1-1.

The Egales struck for the lead the following inning, as a walk and an error got two runners in scoring position with no outs. Andrew Curran knocked both runners in on a single to right field to stretch Husson's lead to 3-1.

In the bottom of the innings, Kane led off with a triple, and Beeson singled him home to pull the Terriers within one. Beeson advanced to seond on an Eagle error.
