The Wolves padded their lead in the top of the third with a lone run on a hit batsman, a sacrifice bunt and an RBI single to take a stunning 4 to 1 in this game.

The proud home standing Eagles supported by the Loyal Legion of Eagles followers narrowed their deficit with a of pair of runs in the bottom half of the third inning with Rey Rey Mendoza leading off the frame with a single, with one out Dee Andre Torres launched a two run homerun way over the fence to make the score 4 to 3 in favor of the Laredo LBJ Wolves.
