Paducah made it a 5-2 game in the bottom of the fifth after Ja’lil Akbar and Drew Hudson reached base via singles.

A groundout from Adam Brian brought Akbar home.

The Flash added a run in the seventh inning on a sacrifice fly from Farmer after Nick Wimber led off with a double and advanced to third base on a wild pitch.

The Chiefs capped the scoring in the bottom of the eighth following a one-out triple from Sam Fagan, who came home on a groundout from Akbar.
