The lead remained at two until the bottom of the sixth inning. Meyers opened the frame with his second double of the game and moved to third when Julks reached base on an infield single. De La Cruz reached on another infield single to the left side and Meyers scored on a throwing error by third baseman Eugene Helder on the play to make it 3-0.
