Little Rock rallied in the sixth inning, tacking on a run, when James Gann filed out to right field to score Christian Reyes to take a 1-0 advantage over the Red Wolves. Little Rock took the lead back in the top of the 11, when Ryan Benavidez launched a home run to right. 

Chandler Fidel shut down the Red Wolves for eight innings, before Justin Felix scored on a fielder’s choice, in the bottom of the ninth to even the score at a run apiece.
