Newark answered with three runs in the bottom half of the inning, two coming on a Zach Padgett RBI single and the other on a rundown. The Brewers scored lone runs in the third and fourth innings to take a 4-3 lead. Cody Burton tripled to lead off the third inning and came around to score on a wild pitch. In the fourth, Marcelo Sanchez scored on an RBI groundout from Mullins.

Newark scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth to come back from the 4-3 deficit and take a 7-4 lead. Tanner Giesel gave the Pilots the lead with a 2-RBI single, scoring Jack Gerstenmaier and Logan Boyher.  Brandon Wilkes scored on a balk and Giesel scored on a wild pitch later in the inning. Utica scored a lone run in the top of the seventh on a Cody Burton sacrifice fly, but it wasn’t enough as Newark went on to win 7-5.
