Long Island scored first with a P.J. Phillips RBI groundout and a Kraig Binick RBI double to left in the second inning off Skeeters starter Clint Everts. Sugar Land evened the score in the bottom of the frame, with Ryan Langerhans driving in a run with a triple, and Koby Clemens following with a RBI single off Ducks starter James Houser.

The Ducks went back in front with two in the third. Ralph Henriquez hit a RBI single to right field, and another run scored on a groundout.
