In the ninth inning, Newberry got close as Pollack hit a single to bring in Jon Kirkland and bring the score to 6-5, but Josh Holmes got Zach Upton to ground out with the winning run on board to earn his first save.
Newberry (5-5) struck first with a run in the second when Mike Morin was walked with the bases loaded, bringing in Jim Pollack. 
Barry also scored in the sixth inning when Nick Shaw blasted a double to bring in Chris Leon fro first, and in the eighth inning, Yan Gomes’ sacrifice fly plated Yudelmis Hernandez with the eventual winning run.
