West Tenn threatened in the ninth inning with runners at first and second before Buck Coats grounded into a game-ending 6-4-3 double play. The Jaxx also had two on in the first against Jacksonville starter Eric Hull, but Brandon Sing struck out to end the inning. Hull allowed five hits in seven innings for a no-decision. He struck out nine without allowing a walk. Right-hander Jon Broxton got the win with two innings in relief. The Jaxx out-hit the Suns 8-3, but stranded six on base.
The series now shifts to West Tenn for games three and four, and if necessary game five.
