Olsen mishandled the ball leading to Arraez and De La Cruz scoring, and everyone safe. Then a groundout, fielder's choice and a strikeout would end the inning, but the game would go to the bottom of the ninth tied at three.

Emmanuel Rivera would ground out to second, getting Nick Gordan to third. With Gordan at third, the hitless Christian Bethancourt hit a grounder to the third basemen Austin Riley.
