In the bottom of the 4th inning Santos would put the Amigos ahead 5-4 driving in Anthony Aguon with an rbi double.  The Amigos would add insurance runs in the 5th and 6th innings with clutch two out rbi singles by Aguon and Bruce San Nicolas putting the Amigos on top 8-4 going into the last inning.
