With P.J. Zocchi going for his club-record 23rd save of the campaign, leadoff man Jeff Helps started the last of the ninth by drawing a walk. Jonathan Malo then doubled to right to score Helps and tie the game at 4-4.
Sebastian Boucher grounded a single in to center field to score Malo and give the Caps the walk-off, series-opening win.
