Gerth, courtesy running for Obermeyer, then scored on a single by Oldham. On the same play – a throw home and back to second in a pick off attempt on Oldham went high off the mark and into an empty center field allowed Oldham to score.Two outs in from the 1st three batters of the inning looked as though the Bulldogs would wake away with the win. Seven full innings of pitching, proved to be just a bit too much for a recently ill-ed Obermeyer. The next two batters walked. Then 2 wild pitches in a row allowed the Charges to charge their way back into the game. A pitching change ensued as Westerfeld took the mound from 1st base. A cold arm by Westerfeld hurled a wild pitch to score the lead run for the Chargers.
