The GC bats were quiet until the bottom of the 6th inning. Annapolis took a 6-0 lead and a no-hitter into the bottom of the 6th where Garden City tallied 4 runs and then added 3 more in the 7th. Jakob May had 2 hits and an RBI for GC. Devin Christopher added a hit and 2 RBI, as did Harnos.

Gavin Fein threw 1.1 innings in relief, picking up 4 strikeouts, and Kevin Widmer picked up the win in relief.
