With two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and a 3-2 count, Lansing's Chris Hawkins grounded an apparent single up the middle past reliever Matt Shelton. Lugnuts players celebrated with Hawkins just past first base, including Santiago Nessy, the runner at first. Loons center fielder James Baldwin fired the throw in to second baseman Kevin Taylor. After the umpires conferenced with themselves and both managers, Nessy was called out for failing to touch second base.

That extended the game to extra innings. In the top of the tenth inning, pinch hitter Leo Rodriguez singled down the first base line to bring home to go-ahead run, and Luis Meza held the Lugnuts scoreless in the bottom half to pull off the improbable victory for the Loons.
