After Mt. Kisco scored four unearned runs in the top of the third to take a two-run lead, the Tigers erupted for four of their own in the bottom of the inning, highlighted by blasts over the left-field fence by Gilchrist and Major. When the Chiefs tied the game with two more in the next inning, North Salem answered with four more in their half, with Baer and Viebrock each collecting two RBI to complete the scoring.
Viebrock led the way with three RBI, Gilchrist and Baer had two apiece, and Major and Weigle each had one.
