The lead didn't last long. In the bottom of the first Myles and Frazier singled and they came home on Jhang's fourth home run of the season for a 3-1 lead.
The Jammers picked up another run in the third and it all started with two outs. Frazier singled, moved to second on an errant pickoff throw and scored on a single by Jhang.
