Connor Hollis and Eguy Rosario each drove in a run to follow on a single and a sacrifice fly, respectively. Then Taylor Kohlwey doubled home two Chihuahuas before Luis Campusano singled him home to cap the second. Matt Waldron threw three scoreless frames to start before allowing three runs in the fourth inning and not completing it. No runs came across in the fifth, sixth, seventh, or eighth, but Ray Kerr did allow a run in the ninth inning to make things interesting.
