Alerta smacked a shot down the center that brought in a run, but an error on the play allowed another run to score with the Expos going up 14-11. Alerta immediately turned to the crowd lifted his arms to keep the noise coming.

The Rays tried to respond in the bottom of the 10th, but quickly fell into a two-out hole with closer RJ Joe getting a clutch strikeout on a looking Corey Paulino. A single from TJ Sarmiento followed by another single from Lance Santos started the framework of a comeback. The game would end on a grounder from BJ Balajadia with the Expos scooping up the ball and tossing it to second base for the game closing out.
