Cody Dickson (3-2) spread six hits over eight innings, striking out five Bobcats to pick up the victory. Michael Burchett got the final three outs in the top of the ninth to earn his first save of the season.

Third baseman Nick Smeiser's RBI single in the second inning accounted for the Bobcats' first run. Center field Jeff McVaney scored the run after reaching first on an error and stealing second base.

But in the seventh, a ground out by shortstop Corey Toups scored catcher John Hale who singled.  Then a bunt single by center fielder Colt Atwood brought in second baseman Jessie Plumlee who doubled to tie the game 2-2.
