Spencer Kieboom singled and doubled as did Hunter Jones (single) and Irving Falu (double) but the rest of the lineup went 0-for-21.

Bryan Harper pitched a scoreless 8th to finish the game. Kelvin Gutierrez tripled in the 4th to knock in Taylor Gushue, who got on with a double, and break up the shutout as the Senators were limited to just six hits total.
