Unfortunately, the next two batters went hitless and Beaver left two on base in the scoreless inning.

In the fifth inning, Beaver couldn't find an answer to the hot bats of Daneville, giving up five additional runs to fall behind 9-0. In the bottom of the inning, Hughes singled, but that would be the only hit in the inning forcing the end of the game by the mercy rule.
