The Power jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the second inning. Oneil Cruz’s double was the key hit in the inning. Cruz and Deon Stafford would add RBIs in the fifth inning to stretch the Power lead to 5-0. Things got dicey in the bottom of the ninth as Ike Schlabach gave up a three run homer and Augusta climbed back to within a run.
