Alfonso Hernández labored through five innings, letting in two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out three. The loss went to Malvin Peña, who gave up the tying run in the 8th for the blown save, then gave up a leadoff triple in the 9th followed by two intentional walks and… you know it… a grand slam in the 9th for the loss. Yasel Antuna doubled, tripled, scored a run, and drove in a run while Jake Alu singled twice to pace the Blue Rocks offense.
