The Baysox broke the scoreless tie in the bottom of the sixth inning against New Hampshire starter P.J. Walters. Ronald Bermudez drew a lead off walk and Niuman Romero followed with a single to right field. Dariel Alvarez brought them home with a two-out homer to left field to give Bowie a 3-0 lead.

New Hampshire came back to take the lead in the top of the eighth inning against Baysox reliever Zach Davies. Kevin Nolan hit a lead off double to left field and Melky Mesa followed with a single up the middle. Jon Berti then tied the game with a home run to left field and Ryan Schimpf kept the hits coming with a ground-rule double to right field. Hector Gimenez followed with a single up the middle that moved Schimpf to third base before reliever Steve Hensley replaced Davies on the mound. Hensley induced a double play, but Schimpf scored from third base to give the Fisher Cats a 4-3 lead.

In the final two innings of the game, the Baysox moved runners into scoring position with a chance to tie the game, but could not come up with the big hit. The Baysox offense hit 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position in the game.

Baysox reliever Chris Petrini recorded the final two outs of the fifth inning, paving the way for Davies to start the sixth inning for the Baysox.
