The Dodgers were able to add another run later in the inning as DeLuzio scored on an Express error during a rundown for a 7-5 advantage. The Express put the potential game-tying runs on base and brought the potential winning run to the plate with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning, but Suero retired the next two Express batters to end the game and secure the win. The teams had exchanged two-run homers in the first inning. Busch hit the first pitch of his at-bat out to right field for a 2-0 OKC lead in the top of the first inning. Then in the bottom of the inning, Round Rock’s Blaine Crim hit a two-run homer to tie the score.
