The C's were able to survive some hairy situations to force this thing to a third and final game. The TSN turning point was the fourth inning. Kyle Anderson gave up a run in the third and then walked the bases loaded in the fourth, one of them intentionally. He fell behind the next hitter 2-0 before pitching coach Jim Czajkowski paid a visit to the mound. Whatever he said worked because Anderson battled back to even the count at 2-2 before inducing a 4-3 inning-ending double play turned by Andy Fermin, the biggest of the season.

It was a good thing for the C's that Chaz Frank reached on an infield single to start the game before coming home on Mitch Nay's single to score the first run. That's because Boise starter Paul Blackburn slammed the door after that, striking out 9 over five innings before turning things over to the bullpen.

Another big play came when Nay broke up a potential inning-ending double play at second base in the sixth on an L.B. Dantzler ground ball. That gave Dawel Lugo a chance to get to the plate with runners at the corners. Lugo, who had struck out twice already because he had trouble laying off of breaking balls, sent a two-strike 75 mph offering into left field to score Fermin with the go-ahead run. Fermin turned a big double play and then had the eventual game winning hit with a two-run triple.

Matt Dermody gave up just one double over his first two innings and got the leadoff man in the eighth before running intro trouble in the form of a double, a balk and a run-scoring single. Closer Chuck Ghysels was called upon to put out the fire and alternated BB's and K's to get out of the frame. The last out was quite a battle that featured several foul balls. Scott Silverstein picked up the save by surviving a single in the ninth.

Also of note, Boise was without five Latin American players today because of visa/passport issues that prevented them from playing in Canada. They will not be available for Game 3 either. Tom Robson is slated to start Game 3 for the C's Monday night.
