In the top of the 5th inning Portsmouth evened the score with consecutive doubles by Jakoby Schoppmeyer [2 for 3, 2 doubles, 2 runs, 2 RBI] and Ferrelli and singles by McCauley [3 for 4, run, RBI] and Roan Wilson [RBI].  Portsmouth took the lead for good in the top of the 6th inning scoring 2 runs on Schoppmeyer's second double of the game followed by a McCauley single.
