St. Paul finally overtook the Pheasants for good in the seventh inning. Trailing 3-2 in a back-and-forth affair, St. Paul rallied for three runs on five straight hits. Back-to-back singles from Jim Rapoport and Shane Costa tied the game and gave the Saints the lead. Dan Cooper’s (1-2) wild pitch allowed another run to score. Cooper suffered the loss in relief.

Reid Mahon (1-2) earned the win in relief, tossing 1 1/3 scoreless innings. Cory Morales paced the Pheasants with a 3-for-5 performance.
