Thomas Saggese had a career day at the plate, hitting for the cycle in his first four at-bats while driving in three runs. Saggese has gone 6-for-13 (.462) with four RBI thru the first four games of the series. With the Wood Ducks clinging to a two-run lead in the ninth, Eudrys Manon slammed the door shut by striking out the side.
