David Amberson hit a one-out double that scored Abel Nieves and moved Derek Perren to third. Perren scored on wild pitch to make it 4-4, then Jared McDonald’s sacrifice fly to right scored Amberson.

Jake Kahaulelio tripled in the seventh and scored on a ground out, and Nieves homered in the eighth.
