Chillicothe starting pitcher Jon Glidewell struggled with his control in suffering the loss. The left-hander twirled the first two-plus innings, walking four batters and giving up three runs. Chillicothe's defense, which committed five errors on Sunday and four errors on Tuesday in back-to-back losses, had two costly throwing errors early, contributing to Nevada's advantage.

Nevada scored single runs in the first, second, and third innings, and added a two-spot in the fourth. Chillicothe relief pitchers Tanner Irwin and Brian Taricska were stellar for the Mudcats, holding the Griffons off the scoreboard over the game's final five innings.

The Mudcats, down 5-0, had a golden opportunity to slice into the lead in the seventh, but Nevada escaped a bases-loaded, no out jam by inducing a strikeout, pop out, and ground-out. Chillicothe got on the board with two eighth-inning runs, as David Zorn scored on a fielding error by the Nevada catcher, and Brandon Dulin crossed the plate on a single by Alex Gutierrez.

Steve Danielak earned the win for Nevada, shutting out Chillicothe over the first innings, while Ryan McKay, a side-winding right-hander, picked up the save, striking out David Gauntt to escape a two-on, two-out jam in the eighth, and retiring the Mudcats in order in the ninth.

The three-game series between Nevada and Chillicothe concludes Thursday night from June Shaffer Memorial Park in Chillicothe, with the Mudcats aiming to avoid the sweep. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05. Nevada is now 3-1 on the season, with Chillicothe falling to 1-3.

A crowd of 379 was reported at Burleigh Grimes Field for the game, with one local veteran reporting that it was 'the largest crowd he had seen at a baseball game in Trenton since the 1970's". The Mudcats game in Trenton was held as a fundraiser for the Trenton Blue Jays American Legion baseball team, and the continued up-keep and improvements to historic Burleigh Grimes Field.
