The game between North Decatur at Rushville made it through five innings before the game was called with two outs in the top of the sixth inning. When the game was called, the Chargers had the lead run in the person of John Kirchoff third with Travis Blodgett at the plate.

The score was 2-2 when the game was called. If North had scored Kirchhoff, they would have had to retire the Lions in the bottom of the sixth inning for the run to have been the winning run. The score would also have counted if the Lions took the lead in their at-bat.

The Chargers scored a single run in the third inning but the Lions came back with two in the fourth to take the lead.

North Decatur knotted the score in the fifth when Eric Brown singles, stole second and third and score on Ben Wenning’s single.
