Starting pitcher Andre Jackson tied his career high by striking out 10 batters over five scoreless innings. Robbie Erlin completed the next 2.2 innings, allowing one run, before Daniel Zamora recorded the final four outs to secure the win. Telis delivered his first home run of the season with two outs in the second inning, sending a fly ball to the left field berm for a 2-0 lead. Jackson stranded eight runners over his five innings and Erlin pitched a scoreless sixth inning before Salt Lake scored on a fielder’s choice in the seventh inning.

Jackson gave up four hits and three walks but held Salt Lake 0-for-6 with six strikeouts with runners in scoring position.
