Bob followed with a double, but a relay from the outfield caught him just as he was about to complete a triple, and Cookies had one out. Tom was retired for the second out of the inning, and Cookies trailed by a run.

Joey was effective on the mound, allowing only three runs to Questionable, but he also provided the only run Cookies scored when he hit a solo homer in the second.
