After hits by Abel Nieves and Madison Beaird, Cole Armstron’s pinch-hit single drove in a run to tie the game. Jared McDonald singled to load the bases, Ryan Khoury was hit by a pitch to force in a run, and John Rodriguez’s single made it a three-run lead.
Josh Dew got his 19th save with a clean ninth inning. Nick Walters pitched the seventh inning for the victory.
