With the bases loaded, Cade Marlowe beat out a potential double play ball to ger credit for an RBI on a fielder’s choice. Robert Perez followed with an RBI single of his own before Marlowe scored on a wild pitch.

Ty Duvall added an RBI triple in the sixth inning before he cranked his first pro home run in the seventh. A big two-run homer over the center field wall.
