In the top of the fourth inning, St. Georges tied things up at three. Nathan Arterbridge led the inning off with a double. After a walk by Ian Helm, Breen singled, scoring pinch runner Gi’Vonni Sanchez. Helm crossed on the plate on the hit as well advancing on the throw attempting to get Sanchez at the plate. Eric Atkins stepped up and doubled to center field allowing Breen to score safely tying the game at 3-3.
