Blake then added 3 more runs in the 2nd inning to go up 6-2. Those would be the last runs they would score.
The Falcons were threatened in the 5th as Blake had the bases loaded with one out and their number 2 and 3 hitters, Shannon and Cunningham coming to the plate. Tyler was able to get Shannon to pop out to 2nd base and then with the bases loaded and 2 outs Cunningham flied out to left.
The Falcons were able to pull to 6-3 in the fourth inning after a single by David Schramm who then advanced to second on a wild pitch. Anthony Caputo doubled up the middle to score Schramm from second.

Heading into the 7th the Falcons needed two runs to tie and three to take the lead. Andy Mlynarczyk started the inning with a single up the middle.

Tyler and Karlin then advanced to 2nd and 3rd on the throw home. With Tanner Werkmann coming up to the plate with already one home run on the day, Blake decided to intentionally walk him. This set up the Falcons down by one run with no one out and the bases loaded for David Schramm batting in the clean up position.
Schramm watched ball one go high and then the stage was set for the seniors Tyler, Karlin, Werkmann, and Schramm to put Poolesville ahead. On the 1-0 pitch the runners began moving on the suicide squeeze call. Schramm laid down the perfect bunt easily scoring Tyler from third to tie the game. On the throw to first Karlin never broke stride rounding third and heading home. Schramm was called out at first and then the throw came home to attempt to get Karlin. Karlin was able to slide past the catcher's tag and jump back to touch home plate safely putting the Falcons up 7-6. That was the way it would stay heading into the bottom of the 7th.
With Tyler pitching a fantastic six innings the ball was handed over to the Falcons closer Tanner Werkmann. Werkmann proceeded to get the first Blake hitter to ground out to Tyler at 2nd. The second Blake hitter then flied out to Mlynarczyk in left. With a 3-1 count on the third hitter with 2 outs Werkmann fought back to get to a 3-2 count. The next pitched was fouled off before Werkmann was able to finish off the inning with a strikeout.
