However, the Blue Anchors scored two runs in the eighth before scoring the four in the ninth, thanks to timely hits, three walks and two wild pitches.

Roman Collins singled to drive in the winning run from third off Mallards closer Tim Black for the walk-off victory.

Starter Christian Taugner went six innings in his fifth start for the Mallards, striking out eight with no walks while giving up four hits and no runs.
