Jaryd Lund would take over in the middle of the 5th inning looking to keep things close but was unable to as Barrie scored 6 additional runs on the Majors. Braeden Ferrington would also pitch in the contest going 1 inning giving up 0 runs before Skylar Janisse would pitch the top of the 9th going 3 up, 3 down.
Byron Reichstein who was leading off in this game was the Majors strongest threat offensively as he went 3 for 5 including a 2-run home run in the 4th inning. Starling Joseph made sure that he was pushing his outfield teammate as he could go 3 for 3, including a double and sac fly that scored runs. Josh Williams and Cleveland Brownlee were also able to drive in runs in the contest.
