Seibert led off again with a single, and Nixon walked again and after 2 Strikeouts the Boars were helped by a few walks and a couple wild pitches which allowed the Boars to add 3 more runs and increase the lead to 8 to the Machine's 0.

The Machine came up in the 6th and after Sully Minner recorded the first out on a sharp grounder to first, Paul Wilson hit a single but left before Srinivasan had gone home and he was able to get him in a 1-3-4-1 pick off and run down taking the tag himself. He then recorded the 6th strikeout of the game.

The Boars added 5 more runs in the 6th, Jimmy Herold singled Matt Seibert, walked and this time both were driven in by J.R.
