The Mules took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first before Hempfield took over. Damon Kreider reached when the second baseman could not handle a chopper. He moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and Darren Rutledge drew a walk. With two out, Harrison Ault delivered a bloop RBI single to center. Caleb Groff singled sharply to left to load the bases but the next batter struck out.
