Tyler Clark walked and they both scored on a Coco Johnson double. Mike Torres doubled home Johnson to make it 4-2.

A Brandon Jacobs sacrifice fly for Traverse City in the fifth made it a one-run game but Windy City got it right back the following frame when Jacob Tanis doubled and White singled him in.

Traverse City tied the score in the sixth. Greg Harisis doubled and Shane Rowland walked and they both scored on back-to-back groundouts.

The game stayed at 5-5 until the eighth inning. White led off with a single and stood at third base with two outs when Deitrich hit his second homer of the year to give the Bolts a 7-5 win.
