In the 4th inning, Rojas singled, advanced to 3rd on a Matijevic double, and eventually scored on a De La Cruz sacrifice fly. Montano relieved Sheetz and pitched well too going 1.1 scoreless innings. The River Bandits would add some insuranc ein the 9th inning with RBI singles from Robinson and Trompiz. Corniel pitched a scoreless 9th to close it out and see Quad Cities to the championship series.
