Reading loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth inning but couldn’t produce a run.

Freylin Minyety came through with two hits for the Fightins while Ali Castillo and Corredor chipped in a hit apiece. The team drew four walks, including three in the bottom of the ninth inning when it attempted to mount a comeback.
