Washington grabbed a 4-0 lead in the second inning, but Jefferson City struck back with two in the third, one in the sixth and two in the seventh and eighth to take 7-4 lead into the ninth. Washington rallied with two runs in the final frame and had the bases loaded with two outs and Tony Helfrich at the plate.

Washington then rebounded to take down the West Jaguars 8-5 in the last game of the day.
