In the seventh, Teddy Peterschmidt doubled and scored after on a Bellingham error off the bat of Kevin Johnson. Johnson scored on another Raider error.

Bellingham scored one in the first off starter Tyler Snavely on a walk, stolen base and single. Snavely held the Raiders in check until the fifth. When two runners reached with one out, Jozef Mendoza took over on the mound. A single, hit batter and error produced two runs.

Peterschmidt and Brent Mertins each had two hits, including a double, for Oak Harbor. Danny Wolfe singled twice, and Nate Stanford and C.J. Meders added singles.
