Trailing 3-0 in the bottom of the fifth inning, West Warwick scored a run on three singles (Matt Hopper, Robert Bird and Ernie Wright), a walk to Matt Grenier and a wild pitch.
After Scituate built a 6-1 lead in the top of the sixth inning on back to back doubles by Gelsomino and Pierce, the Wizards scored a run (Chris Gaipo) on Matt Hopper's fielder's choice.
In the bottom of the seventh inning, the Wizards loaded the bases with Ernie Wright (lead-off single), Matt Grenier (walk) and Chris Gaipo (walk), but left the bases loaded as lefty reliever Alex Pannone induced a pop-out and groundout to end the game.
