This game has it's wheels fall off quickly, as starter Emmett Sheehan got into trouble early. In the first inning he walked two to load up the bases, which was followed up by a grand slam by Tigers designated hitter Cam Hill. Sheehan looked better in the second, but got into trouble again in the third and was pulled shortly after. In just 2+ innings of work, Sheehan allowed eight earned runs.

Third baseman Rankin Woley score five runs in a 2-for-2 game with a walk and was twice hit by a pitch. Catcher Stevan Williams scored three times, walked twice, drove in two and finished 2-for-3.
