In the top of the sixth Victoria added one to their tally, but couldn’t catch the Bombers, who increased their total by two in the bottom of the inning. After Kopetsky reached on a fielder’s choice, catcher Mason Randolph stretched a single all the way to third, allowing Kopetsky to come home. On the next at bat third baseman Hunter Hagler rocked a double to left that brought in Randolph, creating the final score of the game, 6-2.
