The Irish were tied 4-4 with the Rockets in the bottom of the seventh inning and up to bat when an error opened the way to the game-winning run.
Rockford claimed the lead early in the game, scoring in the top of the first inning, and held onto it until the Irish tied it up with a run of its own in the bottom of the fourth.
