- 3B Jeimer Candelario (.358) opened up the third inning with his fourth homer of the AFL season. He singled in the first and scored a batter later to put Mesa on the board. Candelario finished the day 3-for-5 with another single in the seventh.
- RF Mark Zagunis (.270) batted leadoff and recorded an RBI ground-rule double to right field in the second inning. He also drew a walk, going 1-for-4.
On Saturday, Candelario participated in the AFL Fall Stars game, going 1-for-2 with a two-out RBI double. Right-hander Corey Black also came into the game, surrendering three earned runs in an inning of work and striking out one.
