On the mound, Alex Hill got the start and threw for three innings while earning two strikeouts. Christopher Hamann entered for the next three innings and rang up six strikeouts before Charlie Ganote closed out the game in the seventh.

At the plate, Owen Isaacs and Innes Mackay each notched two RBIs and scored three runs.
