Goggins would be the first run of the game scoring on a Paul Novakowski’s RBI single. Rovinetti would score two batters later on Steve Harrison’s single. The score would remain 2-0 until the bottom of the 4th when Blasius would get things going again Fran Phelan singled and would later scoring on Dave Vadnais RBI single. The three runs would be all the Blasius pitching would need as Phelan (1-0) would pitch 4 shutout innings before giving way to Vadnais (1) who would pick up a three inning save only surrendering a run in the 6th.
