Jorge Tartabull rapped a walk off single to give the Pirates a 7-6 win over the Matanzas Crocodiles. With a runner on third and one out the Crocodiles chose to walk intentionally the next two hitters to load the bases to set up the double play. Yaniel Blanco came on to strike out Jose Velasquez for the second out, but Tartabull got the hit to give the Pirates a two game to one lead.

The Pirates sent the game into extra innings in the ninth after a double by Michel Enriquez and a sacrifice fly from Jorge Barcelan. For Barcelan it was his third RBI of the game. Enriquez finished the game with three hits and three runs scored.

Luis Yander La O was the offensive hero for the Crocodiles with three hits, a homerun and two RBIs. Both starters failed to last more than one inning, Darien Nunez failing to get an out in the second inning for the Pirates and Cionel Perez only get two outs in the first inning for the Crocodiles, both pitchers charged with three runs.
