Florence answered in the sixth with an Axel Johnson sacrifice fly. The Bolts cut the deficit to 7-3 with Dan Robinson’s RBI double in the eighth inning. But, once again, Florence responded with runs in the home half. A three-run eighth pushed the Y’alls edge to 10-3.

Brynn Martinez hit his second homer of the series in the top of the ninth, a three-run shot, to conclude the scoring.
