The Aces got on board in the first when Yasmany Tomas tripled in Abraham Almonte. The Redbirds shut down the Aces and scored seven runs before the Aces scored in the bottom of the eighth.

An out later, Travis Snider walked, loading the bases, and then Abraham Almonte walked as well, forcing in another run. The Aces rallied in the ninth and scored a run, but ultimately came up short. Wyatt Mathisen doubled, and John Ryan Murphy singled, scoring Mathisen from second. Marty Herum walked, but Caleb Joseph went down on strikes to end the game.
