After a leadoff double in the top of the fifth, West exited to give the ball to Matt Kilburn. This was Kilburn first appearance of the year since recovering from a hamstring injury. Kilburn came in throwing ground balls but they found holes as MUM increased their lead to 8-4.

The score would stay like that until the bottom of the 6th when the Pride erupted. The Tartan offense scored nine runs in the inning on nine hits, two doubles and a Ricky Masson (pictured on left) 3-Run Bomb that put them ahead.
