The big four run inning from the Hens cut the deficit, as the score became 10-4, in favor of the Storm Chasers.

In the top of the sixth, Josh Lester led off the inning, hitting his eighth double of the season. This led to Ryan Lavarnway snagging his second RBI of the game, with a ground ball to score Lester. This cut the lead in half, as Toledo only trailed 10-5. However, the Storm Chasers would once again hit another two-run blast, to increase their lead. The Storm Chasers would snap the Mud Hens winning streak, with a score of 12-5.
