However, in the bottom of the second, Mike Taylor tied it for the
Riversharks with an r.b.i. single. Taylor was caught in a rundown after his
hit and the length of the rundown allowed the second Orillia run to score.

In the third, Niagara took a 3-2 lead on a solo homer by shortstop Trevor
Falk over the left field fence.

Again, the Riversharks would tie the affair in the bottom of the third.
Centerfielder Steve Mullaly beat out an infield hit with 2 on to tie the
score at 3.

Both starter Rob O'Brien and shortstop Brent Thompson had 2 run triples to
highlight the surge.

In the 6th, O'Brien had another r.b.i. to finish the game and give the
