Eastside came out in the 1st inning and scored two quick runs and were looking to make it a big inning, but a Highland triple play took away any chances of a big inning and shifted the momentum back to their side.
By the fifth inning Highland had taken a 5 to 4 lead, but in the sixth Branden Alpeza came through with a clutch two out two run double that put Eastside back ahead.
Andrew Potter was able to find his second wind after Alpeza's double and proceeded to strike the next 5 out of 6 batters out ending the game and showing why he is one of the premier pitcher's in the Golden league.
