Joe Rottman got the win for Almont that day. He worked five innings, allowing two hits, striking out eight and walking two along the way.

Eric O'Connor came on in relief for Rottman, going the last two innings. He gave up one hit, struck out two and hit two batters over that stretch.

Dennis Harrow and Pat Russell (a single and a double each) along with Corey Downing (a pair of singles) led Almont's offensive attack. The Raiders also had Mike Grundner, Evan Shelton and John Finn (a single apiece) reach the hitting column.
