After a couple of walks to leadoff the game, Berryhill blasted a ball over the left field fence to give the Woodpeckers a 3-0 advantage. In the third the ‘Peckers would add on their lead after a couple of RBI singles from Nathan Perry and Yeuris Ramirez.

In the bottom half of the frame the Red Sox finally got on the board. Back to back RBI doubles from Matthew Lugo and Stephen Scott gave the Red Sox a pair. Joe Davis drove in Scott on a sacrifice fly a batter later to cut the deficit to two for the Sox.

Luke Berryhill struck again in the top of the fourth with his second home run of the game to left field, putting Fayetteville up four once again. Following a sacrifice fly and Jayson Schroeder walking the bases loaded, Stephen Scott provided a bases clearing double to tie the game at 7-7.
