Tyler “Kennesaw Mountain” Stephenson went 3 for 3 with a walk and a double, and Michael Beltre went 3 for 4 with a RBI.
Ryan “Blooming” Lillie started the game and was decent. He allowed only three earned runs over six innings on five hits, two walks, while striking out two.

In Game 1, James Marinan took the start and gave up three earned runs over two innings on three hits, two walks, while striking out no one. Mariel Bautista hit a solo dinger. Mike “Superstar” Siani went 2 for 4 with two runs scored and his 34th steal of the year, and Randy Ventura went 2 for 3. Michael “Wonder Bread” Lofstrom went 1 for 2 with a RBI and two walks.
Connor Curlis took the start and was just masterful. He pitched six shutout innings over six innings on two hits, no walks, while striking out 10. Clate Schmidt picked up the save. Brian Rey hit a dinger that all but sealed it.
