The lead changed hands four times in the game. Ohatchee led 2-0 in the first, Jacksonville pulled ahead 7-4 with a five-run fourth and the Indians rallied with a five-run fifth to take a 9-7 lead.

The Golden Eagles took the lead for good in the fifth, tying the game on Austin Lackey’s two-run and scoring the go-ahead run on a passed ball. Ohatchee tied it at 10 in the top of the seventh on Tristan Woodall’s sacrifice fly.

Seeger was hit by a pitch leading off the home seventh. He moved to second on a passed ball, advanced to third on Lackey’s one-out single and ended the game when he came home on a passed ball. Seeger scored four runs in the game.
