Dave Shoreman took to the hill for the hometown team, and pitched 4 innings of 4 hit ball. Shoreman left the game tied 3-3 after 4. Dave Doucette came on and finished the game surrendering 5 runs (4 earned).

The game was paced by homeruns from Matt Lane in the 2nd over the Lane Pole in right which platted Kevin Michael who was hit by a pitch. Shoreman went bridge in the 5th inning with Anthony Hernandez on 2nd after hit lead off double. Ricky Sotoropolus led the team going 3 for 4 at the plate.

The Chiefs look to tie up the series on Wednesday, in Essex.
