Scheiner allowed seven hits and struck out four for the Chargers. The biggest threat from the Beavers came in the seventh as Scheiner retired the first batter, but gave up a single to pinch-hitter Brandon Gallagher (North Yarmouth, Maine). Doucette came in and allowed singles to Chris Whitney (Lisbon, Maine) and Dale Winchenbach (Waldoboro, Maine), but got a pair of strikeouts to finish the shutout.
