Knapp walked to start the fifth, took third on Ellis' single and scored on a sac fly to shallow right to make it 4-0. A two RBI single by Knapp in the sixth made it 6-0.

The Electric got on the board in the sixth when Cole Bolton (running with two outs for catcher Dave Bahm) scored on Jeff Cavanagh's RBI double.
