Augie Martinez was the starting pitcher on the day giving up four hits for five earned runs and four strikeouts in 3.2 innings of work then Dennis Smith came in in relief allowing two earned runs off of two hits and Lorenzo Galicia finished the game not allowing a hit or run in 1.1 innings.

Game two started off with the Drovers scoring two in the first inning and not looking back after that scoring six in the final three innings. Ben Bills and AJ Munoz both had doubles while Derrick Clement and Kyle Contreras had singles to obtain their five hits for one run in the second inning.
