They widened that lead in the second thanks to an RBI double by Greco and a two RBI double by Clint Moore to make the score 4-0 in their favor. Greco added his first two-run shot in the third for a 6-0 advantage, and a sac fly by Kevin McKague, RBI double by Greco, RBI single by Tony Capozzi, groundout RBI by Andy Ernesto, and RBI single by Moore extended the score to 11-0 after four innings.
