Then the DeKalb offense came alive. DeKalb would piece together singles to score two runs in the bottom of the 3rd and hit a two run homerun in the bottom of the 5th. DeKalb would put the game away and score five unearned runs in the bottom of the 6th inning, with two outs, to win by a final score of 9-3.
