- 3B Jeimer Candelario ripped a two-run homer in the sixth inning and singled in the third for the Solar Sox. Candelario, the AFL Player of the Week for his efforts last week, finished the day 2-for-5.
- 2B Elliot Soto was 0-for-3 with a walk and scored the game-winning run on a Renato Nunez (Athletics) single in the top of the ninth.
- RHP Pierce Johnson got the start and gave up three earned runs in 4.0 innings, striking out four in the no-decision.
- RHP David Garner pitched a scoreless eighth and ninth inning to pick up the win. He struck out five and allowed just one hit.
