After an impressive turnaround this season, Vicente Campos struggled in his start against the Red Sox affiliate. He allowed five runs on nine hits and two walks over 5.0 innings, but still managed to strike out five. The bullpen wasn't much better as Alex Smith allowed a run on two hits and a walk over 2.0 innings. Still, it was a one-run game heading into the ninth inning, but Tyler Jones gave up another three on five hits in two innings of his own. It all looked lost, but a wild bottom of the ninth would end up giving Trenton the win.
On the evening, Kyle Higashioka continued his offensive outburst with a home run, two singles, and a walk, bringing in two runs. Jose Rosario brought in a run on three hits, while Billy Fleming singled, doubled, and walked to knock in an RBI of his own.

In the ninth inning, now down four runs, everything started off with a walk to Higashioka. Lane Adams then singled and a wild pitch put them on second and third. Another single from Rosario brought in one run, but the next two batter struck out. With two outs, Trenton opted to bring in Mark Payton to pinch hit for O`Neill, and he hit a three-run home run to tie the game. After a pitching change, Tyler Wade hit an inside-the-park home run to score the winner.
