Andrew Morrow started the late inning madhouse with a solo home run to lead off the seventh. Two of the next three batters would get out but the Spitters added three more runs off of some throwing errors by Kenosha and a single by Daniel Head.
In the eighth, the bottom of the order stepped up again and plated four runs. Head batted in Morrow to start, followed by two walks that scored runs before Mario Camilletti hit a sacrifice to earn their 13th run.
