Tyler Mark got the final out of the seventh inning. Kevin McCanna pitched a perfect eight and ninth inning, striking out three.

This game was sans Daulton Varsho, Drew Ellis,and Pavin Smith, while Marcus Wilson who did play, was 0-4 with a walk, yet the team had two big four run innings to back up the stellar pitching in this game. The only two extra base hits of the game were a pair of doubles, and the rest of the offense came from singles, walks, and sac flies. Dominic Miroglio was 2-4 with a double, a walk, and a stolen base. Stephen Smith was 2-5 with a double. Camden Duzenack was 3-5.

Hillsboro Hops 12 Everett AquaSox 6

Hillsboro scored 12 runs in the first, 7 off of Everett starter Carlos Hernandez who could get only one out, and 5 more off of Cody Mobley who came on to relieve him before he could get out of the inning. All that being said, Matt Tabor’s five runs off of six hits and two walks, while striking out only two in 3.2 innings of work doesn't sound nearly as bad in comparison. Kai Wei-Lin got the final out of the fourth inning, and pitched scoreless fifth. Josh Green pitched the sixth and gave up a run off of three hits and a walk. Trevor McKenna walked two in a hitless seventh and eighth inning. Jayson McKinley struck out two in a perfect ninth.
