The Marlins opened the scoring in the bottom of the third on an Omar Lebron RBI-double, but the Rays (0-2) took the lead in the next half inning with a four spot, courtesy of a Raider Brito RBI-double, a Bryan Santos sacrifice fly, and a two run shot by Roimer Bolivar (1). The Rays tacked on two more to make it 6-1 in the fifth on a Lebron fielding error and a Jose Del Palacio RBI-groundout.

The Marlins made their move in the bottom of the fifth, scoring five runs to tie the game. Joseph Gilma hit an RBI-single, Wiklerman Rasquin hit a three-RBI triple, then scored on a Daniel Santana wild pitch. They took the lead in the seventh on a Christopher Rodriguez RBI-double and added an insurance run in the eighth on an Alfredo Balbuena throwing error.
