It would be until the fourth inning before either team put a run across. New Balance would be the first as Felder lead off with a double, advanced to second on a passed ball, steal third, and eventually come home to score after another passed ball giving New Balance a 1-0 edge. New Balance put another run on the board in the bottom of the fourth after a screaming double was hit by Batson; who scored Drye. Drye singed earlier in the inning and then stole second. That’s all New Balance would need to take the victory 2-0.
