-It looked good in the early going with the Topes scoring 5 in the 3rd to take a 6-2 lead. Unfortunately, Savage would allow 3 unearned runs in the 6th, followed by a pair of runs allowed from Scott Rice and Shane Lindsay. Matt Angle, Aaron Miles and Josh Fields each had a pair of hits at the top of the order. Trent Oeltjen and Fedex added doubles.

-Chris Withrow cruised through the first 3 innings, striking out 7. Unfortunately, he began struggling in the 4th, allowing a pair of runs, then letting two more on base in the 6th, both of whom would score. J.T. Wise was a late sub and his solo homer in the 7th would tie the game. In the 10th, Brahiam Maldonado would reach on an error and Blake Smith would cap off his stellar night with a walk-off double.

-Rancho would also get a walk-off in the 10th. This one was a little more dramatic. Once again, the winning run would reach via error, as the shortstop misplayed a grounder hit by Gallagher. C.J. Retherford would sac him to second and Garcia would take an IBB. Jarrad Page hit one back to the box and the pitcher recorded a force out at second. Another intentional walk, this time to Mike Pericht, would bring up Alexis Aguilar. After going 0 for 4 with 3 strikeouts, Aguilar would go from goat to hero with a single to left.

-The Loons didn't need late drama to win, as the offense went off for 14 runs. The scoring didn't start until the 3rd, when Great Lakes and Dayton exchanged runs. The Loons would add another in the 4th, then 6 in the 5th, 4 in the 6th, and a run in both the 8th and 9th innings. Scott Schebler led the way with 4 hits, including his 6th triple. Taylor and Cuevas added their 2nd home runs. Pedro Guerrero added a pair of hits with a double. Jesse Bosnik also tripled.
