Ernie Farrell doubled to left field and Darin Vizcaino hit a three run homerun. The long inning continued as Joe Duffie singled to center field. After Aaron flied to left and Waterbury struck out Johnny Walkup doubled to center field to tie the game. John Ewing came in to pitch but he surrendered a two run homer to pinch hitter Jimmy Iott.
