The next batter, Reilly, doubled, but made a base running error and was caught out in between bases. Questionable Outfit continued to hit the ball hard, as Bob slammed a solo homer, extending the lead to 2-0. Joey retired Mike for the second out of the inning.

Vassallo followed with a single, putting runners on first and second with no outs. The next batter, Morrison, also singled, scoring Guthrie from second and cutting the score to 2-1. Cookies & Cream were set to mount a rally with no outs and runners on the corners, but Bob pulled things together, retiring Dinger and Joey to strand both runners and end the inning.
