Stubbs, Tanielu, and Garcia all had RBI singles in the 5th. Lancaster went into the bottom of the 9th up 5-4 but Heredia surrendered a 2 run triple and RC came away with the victory. Trent Thornton was great striking out 7 in 4 innings.

Tucker ended up two hits and another stolen base giving him 15 on the season.
