Left fielder Rodolfo Nolasco hit his 13th double of the season in a 2-for-3 performance, driving in three runs, scoring twice and drawing a walk. It was also a big game for shortstop Maikol Escotto who went 3-for-5 with his 3rd double, driving in a run.

Luis Peralta started for the Marauders and pitched 2.1 scoreless innings. Carlos Lomeli was net up and struggled. In 2.2 innings pitched, Lomeli allowed three runs on four hits and a home run. Wilkin Ramos then pitched a scoreless inning while recording a strikeout.
