Mercado was stellar in his 2.0 innings of work not allowing a single hit nor run and struck out three batters. Solomon Bates continued to do it all coming in to pitch the remainder of the game and was as strong as Mercado. Bates, who also performed DH duties in the second game, pitched 2.0 innings only allowing three hits and no runs. Bates also struck out four Saints batters during his time on the mound.

The Barons rediscovered their hitting in the second game. The Barons recorded ten hits with five players on the recording at least two hits. Catcher Joseph Argumedo went 2-4 with 3 RBIs and Randy Rubio hit the ball well once again going 2-5 with 2 RBIs.
