There was no more scoring until the top of the tenth inning, when a John Giakas RBI groundout made it 5-4, and Martinez walked with the bases loaded, making it 6-4 Cowboys going to the bottom of the 10th. The Invaders tied the game in the 10th on a Kyle Peralta two run homerun.  This game went to the eleventh inning.  

In the bottom of the 11th inning, Giakas stroked an RBI single, making it 8-6.  Matt Terrones came on for the save in the bottom of the 11th.
