Frederick (60-77) scored twice against Rayl in the first inning. With the bases loaded and one out, Allan de San Miguel hit a ground ball to short. Ronny Rodriguez got the force at second, but a wild throw by Todd Hankins sailed into the first base dugout, allowing a second run to score.
The Keys struck again in the fifth, scoring a trio of runs on three hits.

Alex Monsalve started the Mudcats’ final gasp in the ninth with a double into the right field corner. The catcher scored on a triple by Delvi Cid, smoked into center field. Mark Bradley drove in Cid with a single to finish the scoring.
