After an intentional walk to Thomas Hughes, Zachary hit an RBI single to tie the ball game at 6-6, and then Eric Hamilton smoked the game-winning RBI single into deep left field, giving the Suns their second win in a row, a 7-6 victory over the Worcestor Bravehearts.
 
Hamilton racked up a total three RBI and two runs on a three for five night for the Suns. He doubled in the fourth inning and singled in the sixth & ninth innings.
 
Jamin McCann pitched well in five innings, six hits, one walk, and an impressive eight stikeouts. His one hiccup on the came in the first inning by way of a two-run homer to Rafael Bournigal, the only two runs charged to McCann on the night as he gathered a no decision.
 
Gage Feeney picked up the win, running his season record to 1-0. He allowed one run over two innings. Feeney struck out three, walked two and surrendered three hits.
 
Schramm ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with his first loss of the year. He didn't record an out while walking two (one intentional), giving up three hits, and allowing three runs.
