The drive shut down the Renegade’s in the fifth and then turn around and get shut down and both teams are shut out in the fifth. Then in the 6th inning both teams pitch shut out ball, so we head to the 7th inning 6-5 Renegades in the lead.

The Drive shut out the Renegade’s in the top of the 7th inning. The Drive are able to get a score on a attempted pickoff at third, but the ball goes off into left field and the run is in and we are tied at 6-6 heading into the top of the 8th inning.
That's one way to tie it.

The Renegades are kept from scoring in the 8th and the Drive are out to get a score and take the lead but are kept from scoring and we are on to the 9th inning tied at 6. The 9th inning starts, and it just explodes on the Drive as Hudson Valley opens up a scoring bonanza with 5 runs and its 11-6 and Greenville will make a pitching change to try and get out of the inning. The Game ends and its Greenville coming up short in the late innings to Hudson Valley.
