PSE scored a quick run on a walk and a pair of singles followed by a laser shot down the left-field line by Scott Thibault, which cleared the fence easily. Pemberton got out of the inning and really settled into a groove as he gave up just three more hits the rest of the way.

He was soon knocked in by Pemberton to tie it up. Pemberton proceeded to steal second and then third to put the winning run just 60 feet away. Cleanup hitter Zach Brown laced an 0-1 pitch to right field that plated the winning run and gave Aero their second victory of the season. Pemberton went the distance for Aero.
