The Missions attempted a late comeback in the seventh inning as they drove in two runs. With two outs in the inning, Kyle Overstreet singled and Jack Suwinski walked. Juan Fernandez drove in Overstreet with an RBI single. Allen Cordoba followed that up with an RBI single of his own. Those two runs would be the only ones the team would score.
