However the Green Giants responded by cutting the lead to 5-3 heading into their final at bat, where Jalen Thomas drove in the tying runs with a sharp single to right center field.
In extra innings both teams traded zeros until the 11th inning when Monarchs right fielder Ryan Fournier hit a crushing grand slam to left field, giving Lake Erie a 9-5 lead.
