With the bases loaded, relief pitcher Nick Peterson gave up a grand slam to Spenser Augustine of Ottawa closing the Wildcats lead to within one run at 7-6.

Resiliency was key. Baker pushed across four more runs in the bottom half of the sixth and went on to win its first victory of the 2010 campaign.
