Amarillo padded its lead, 2-0, on an RBI double from Mack Chambers. Gerald Nervis, who had doubled, scored.

Eduardo Acosta blasted a 2-run homer to left center to put the Sod Dogs up, 4-0, in the fifth inning.

Rhett Maynard scored on a wild pitch to make it 5-0, and Nervis smacked an RBI double in the sixth for Amarillo. Acosta laced an RBI single into left center to score Nervis. The Sod Dogs took a 7-0 lead going into the bottom of the sixth.
