After a game where they scored 20 runs, the Aces lone run came on a Rey Fuentes home run in the first inning, and they failed to really threaten after that. Jake Buchanan pitched 6 scoreless innings, but ran into trouble in the seventh after getting one out, and ended giving up 2 runs on 3 hits and a walk, while striking out 8. Joey Krehbiel pitched 1.2 innings, walking two batters and striking out a batter. Silvino Bracho pitched a scoreless inning in the ninth, striking out a batter.
The Generals quite literally threw this game away, with throwing errors by Jose Vinicio and Galli Cribbs being the difference maker in this game. Ryan Atkinson pitched 5.0 innings, giving up 4 runs (3 earned) on 3 hit and 3 walks, while striking out 7. Gabe Speier pitched 2 innings, giving up 2 hits and an unearned run, while striking out one. Daniel Gibson pitched a scoreless eighth inning, walking a batter.
Jose Vinicio was 2-4 with a double and a triple, and Jamie Westbrook was 2-3 with a triple and a walk. Dan Robertson was 2-4 with a double and a walk.
The Rawhide were up 4-3 in the fifth before a 6 run inning in the sixth inning put the game out of reach. Starting pitcher Riley Smith exited the game in the sixth inning after giving up a home run and 4 runs total on 7 hits and a walk, while striking out five. Austin Mason entered the game and got one out, allowed two runs to score, and left with runners on the corners. Junior Garcia would enter the game, and allow a bases clearing triple, and a wild pitch to follow allowing a run to score. Garcia would settle down after that, striking out the next five batters, and two more in the eighth, for seven total, and would allow no more hits. Jordan Watson would pitch a perfect inning in the ninth, striking out one.
