Isaac Williams played hero for the River Riders in the bottom of the seventh inning, sending a ground ball into center field to grab a 2-1 victory.

The Doughboys held a 3-0 lead over the River Turtles until the fifth inning, when the visitors tallied four runs to take a slight advantage. Matt Miceli knotted the game back up, 4-4, for Johnson City in the bottom half of the inning.

The two teams would go to sudden-death extras, where Pulaski held the home team scoreless for the win.
