The one Sox (2-0) hit was a 3-run home run in the top of the fourth which was the hitters second in as many games. The home team's pitcher's struggled to find the plate which resulted in 14 walks which accompanied 3 fielding errors.
The Tigers (0-1) trailed 4-0 into the bottom of the fourth inning when the bats began to come alive scoring 3 in the inning. The Sox scored one in the top of the fifth to move the score to 5-3.
Bear River mounted a 6th inning comeback as they had runners on second and third with one out. They did score a run to pull within one but the Sox pitcher stuck the last batter of the game out with the tying run on third.
"It was a great first game." said the Tigers coach. "Once our pitchers put their first game jitters behind them we should compete with any team."
