The Mohawks got a run back in the second on a Dan Maynard RBI single but Utica quickly responded with two more runs, coming on a Mitchell Calandra RBI single and a groundout. Down 5-3 in the ninth, Amsterdam loaded the bases and scored a run on a walk but a strikeout and a pop out ended the game.

In the third, Perteet hit an RBI triple and a groundout extended the lead to 5-1.
