Daniel Lahare doubled to drive in two addition runs and cut the Wolfpack lead to a run. In the fifth, Justin Ory led off with a double, advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on a single by Christian Clayton to tie the score. Co-Lin’s Matthew Mordecai’s solo homerun opened the bottom of the fifth and broke the tie before a double steal and a fielder’s choice padded the 7-4 lead. Delgado’s Brandt Broussard led off the Dolphin sixth with a single and scored on a two-run homerun by JP LaGreco. Two batters later, a homerun by Justin Ory knotted the game 7-7.
