Smith Post used a big 6 run second inning to put Utica in a hole that was too big to climb out of. Smith combined 3 hits with 2 walks and 3 Utica errors to plate 6 runs in the 2nd inning.  Tim Saccento had 4 hits and an RBI and Steve Eychner had 3 hits and an RBI for Smith Post.  Brandon Bertrand earned the victory on the mound.

Utica was led offensively by Justin Hall with 3 hits, while Matt Scotellaro and Mike Obernesser contributed 2 hits each.  Utica stranded 14 baserunners throughout the game.
