Davis Stoneburner helped contribute to the Surprise victory with his go-ahead sacrifice fly in the bottom of the sixth inning. The run, which gave the Rafters a 3-2 lead, would be the final of the game. In all, Stoneburner was 1-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts and a stolen base. He also played third base and committed a throwing error.
Right-hander Fabio Castillo earned his second save of the Fall League campaign with a scoreless ninth inning, though it took some work. The big hurler threw only 10 of his 21 pitches for strikes, and he yielded two hits and a walk while fanning one. According to pitch f/x, Castillo's fastball velocity ranged between 93-95 mph.
