Austin Pentecost and Mitchell Wilhite combined to shut out the Thunderbirds. The Birds were out-hit by only 7-5, but the Warriors got a two-RBI double from SS Bobby Tannehill in the second inning (the two baserunners that scored were the result of walks), a sacrifice fly by 2B Billy Silvestri in the fifth, and a three-run home run by 1B Alfonso Casillas in the ninth.
Three of the Birds' hits was in the fifth inning, and they had the bases loaded with no outs. However, CF Sebastian Wong was thrown out at home, and the Birds left the bases loaded.
Wong got two of the five Thunderbird hits. Tavis Bruce started, went six innings, allowed five hits, walked four. Conor Lillis-White pitched a hitless inning, and Markus Fergusson pitched the final two innings, gave up the Casillas home run.
