Lake Elsinore Storm (72-65) Lost 5-2
The Storm took an early lead in the second inning thanks to an Olivier Basabe RBI groundout. However, a four-run third inning for Lancaster shot the JetHawks into the lead. Reiss Knehr pitched two shutout innings with a strikeout, but Felix Minjares entered after him and allowed a Luis Castro bases-loaded single that cleared the bases and allowed Castro to score after a Jeisson Rosario error. An Eguy Rosario sacrifice fly cut the deficit to two, but it was the closest Lake Elsinore got to tying the game.
