Kiernan Smith controlled the game from behind the plate and Brendan (BB) Byrne had a bases-clearing triple to open up the game. The second game of the week was an 8-4 win versus the Mak Mint Used CarsDodgers, in which Leon Levy had a huge two-run double. James Resker was 3-for-3 with three runs scored and T.J. McElhinney had a double and single with two RBIs. Colin Byrne threw two scoreless innings.
