Relievers Austin Krzeminski and Mayky Perez did not fair better combining to give up four runs on eight hits.

Two Cougar errors put Williams at third and D. C. Arendas at first. An errant pickoff attempt scored Williams and put Arendas at third. Keinner Pina, in his first Bees at bat of the year, earned an RBI with a sacrifice fly. Burlington up 3-0 after a half inning.
It stayed that way until a single Cougar run in third, three in the fourth and four in the fifth made it 8-3 Kane County.
Arendas lead off the seventh with a double. Two ground outs got him home. Francisco Del Valle notching the RBI. Bees down 8-4, and that is as close as it would get.
