Major League game 17 was a roller coaster ride providing Hagan and Baker many opportunities to overcome adversity. Early energy by an aggressive Baker's offensive attack found Hagan's behind 5-1 after one inning & 6-1 after two. The third inning demonstrated Hagan's first victory against adversity posting 5 runs and tying game at 6-6. Baker's wasted no time storming back in the top of the fourth lead by offensive star Brian Virbitsky (3 hits-3 runs scored) posting three runs & adding another in the fifth to take a commanding 10-6 lead into the bottom of the sixth.

This provided the stage for Hagan's to challenge adversity once more & challenge they did. The inning started with three straight hits by Barker, Gill & Tommy "hitman" Zeigler but Baker's battled back to record two straight outs. The stage was now set for one great comeback which Hagan's produced with two outs behind 10-8, Brown, Bauwens, Stroup & Golub got hits to secure a thrilling 11-10 victory.
