A huge first inning for TN Credit allowed them to hold an early lead, but Randall Walker Farms clawed its way back into the lead only to fall behind on defense and TN Credit pulled the come-from-behind win, 10-7.

Arick Murphy and Andrew Miller also reached first base before the final out was made, and TN Credit had a 6-0 lead after its first trip to the plate.

In the top of second, J.J. Jacobs and Caylon Driver both trotted down to first base after a walk. Baler Melton put the ball in play and runs started to cross for the second straight inning. Key drew his second walk of the game and TN Credit was on the move. After a fly ball for out one, Parker Smith walked as well. And following a pattern from the first inning, TN Credit added to its run total and after the final out of the inning the lead had grown to 9-2.
Randall Walker Farms had a far better second inning after starting the inning with a strikeout.

Out two came off a strikeout followed by a walk from Cameron Perry. Base hits by VanVuuren and Talan Mullican brought more runs across for Randal Walker Farms. Perry was caught at home for the final out of the inning, 9-7.
