Glenelg Country stayed in the game thanks to an excellent pitching performance by Tyler Henderson (CG, 9 K, 1 BB, 3 H, 0 ER).

Henderson was able to help his own cause in the bottom of the sixth when he drove in the tying runs with a base hit. His courtesy runner then scored what proved to be the game winning run on an error.

Finally, in the top of the seventh, Henderson struck out two and induced a game ending ground ball to close out the complete game victory.

The Dragons improved to 8-6 in the B Conference with the win, and are now in second place in the Red division standings.
