Binghamton 3 New Hampshire 2
This game went to extra innings tied at one. The Fisher Cats went ahead in the fourth inning on a sac fly by Logan Warmoth. Another sac fly tied the game in the sixth. And so the game went to extra innings. The tenth inning started with a runner on second. With two outs pitcher Dany Jimenez intentionally walked Braxton Lee.
