Emsley-Pai and Diaz combined to go 0-6 before their heroics of drawing the walk before Diaz' clutch double that won the game for the Power and set off a mob scene all the way to the outfield behind second base.
"It was an amazing feeling," Diaz said. "We weren't having a good game from the beginning. To end it that way, it was great. That was my first walk off here. It was fun and an awesome feeling."
Diaz was proud of the way the Power hung in there until the late heroics.
"I was looking for one pitch and one pitch only," Diaz said. "I got it and took a hack at it. It was a fastball in. We had some good at bats in the ninth. This team is resilient, never gives up, and always battles."
Ryan was equally impressed with the late comeback from his team.
"It's great fight," Ryan said. "These guys don't give up. That's what they do every night.
"They believe they are in every game. This is a win that can carry you for a long time. They are starting to get hungry into the possibility at the end."
Delmarva struck first, plating a run in their first at-bat. With one out, Lucas Herbst singled, Creede Simpson was hit by a pitch, and Wynston Sawyer delivered a big two-out single down the left field line for the Shorebirds.
Sawyer was the man of the night for Delmarva, delivering another clutch two-out hit in the fifth inning as well. With his team clinging to their one run lead, the Shorebird catcher doubled to score a pair of runs and put the Power a 3-0 deficit.
