Jose Valdespina (L, 1-1) was awarded the loss, going 2.2 innings and allowing seven runs on nine hits. A total of six Express pitchers took the mound, including, for the first time in Triple-A franchise history, a position player. Catcher Pat Cantwell took the mound the ninth inning. Cantwell struck out Chris Parmelee before allowing a home run to Matt Chapman. Cantwell recovered to retire two of the final three batters.
