As Eli Cook came to bat, he made a single play to advance Martin to home and end the inning with the bases loaded.
Pitcher Kurt Prater held the Dothan team scoreless until deep in the seventh inning. He only gave up three single plays to allow the Dothan team to score the two runs that put them on top at the end of the game.
