Kevin Keyes reached base four times with a walk, two singles, and a double and drove in three while Caleb Ramsey went 3-for-5 with two RBI to lead the 13-hit, four-walk attack.

Drew Ward (1-for-3) drove in the first run of the 9th with an RBI single as only he and Brenann Middleton (2-for-3, BB) reached base multiple times for the Suns. Lucas Giolito’s 2014 Futures Game appearance was uneven as he gave up a singlethen had Javy Baez put a coat on a hanger for a two-run blast to turn a 1-0 USA lead into a 2-1 deficit in the 6th before retiring the next two on a long flyout and strikeout before he was lifted.
