The Game Changed When… Sugar Land found 2 out lightning in the bottom of the 3rd inning after having their first two batters of the frame retired. Joe Benson got on base with a single, and Josh Prince brought him all the way around with a double for the game’s first run. Anthony Giansanti would follow with a double of his own to bring Prince around, and that gave Sugar Land a 2-0 lead. That lead would stand until the final out.
