Travis Howard answered in the next half inning when he sent a ball just fair down the left field line for a double scoring Bill Rice all the way from first who reached by singling through the right side.
Gary Asbill later scored Howard who had moved over to third on a wild pitch to give the Pacers their first lead of the day at 2-1.
Augusta State tied the game in the top of the eighth inning off a sacrifice fly by Phillip Anchors to score Burrow.
