However, with two outs and the Yankees down to their last strike, they erupted for five runs in the top of the 9th to take a 9-8 lead.

In the Reds 9th Savite led off the inning with a double and advanced to 3rd on a passed ball but was then tagged out trying to score on another passed ball. With two outs, the Reds started their rally as Tom Pavero walked and Nick Sommo followed with a ground rule double. With Pavero at third and Sommo at 2nd, catcher Pat Rooney walked to load the bases, Revet then walked to tie the game and DeRosa followed with a walk to win the game for the Reds 10-9.

Savite, who just finished his sophomore campaign playing for Moravian College, led the Reds going 4-5 with an RBI and two runs scored. Revet finished the day 2-4 with 3 RBI, one run scored and a walk and Sommo would finish 3-5 with 2 runs scored and an RBI.

On the mound for the Reds Doug Pastore started the game going six innings while allowing four runs, two earned while striking out five and scattering six hits.

Savite picked up his first win of the season in relief pitching 1/3 of an inning striking out one.
