Spot starter Max Karmsky did his job, keeping the A's in the game against the solid Appleton team until giving way to eventual winner Harry Steldt in the sixth. Steldt blanked Appleton the rest of the way.
An error helped Appleton open scoring in the second, but the A's tied it in the third. Widh one out Derek Peake singled and went to third on Taylor Schwarz's double. Peake scored on Colin Willis sacrifice fly. Appleton added single runs in the fifth and sixth, but the A's came back to 3-2 on Willis' triple and an error.
