Bielak got the start for the Hooks but struggled a bit allowing 4 runs over just 2.1 innings. The Hooks first got on the board in the 3rd inning on a Goetzman solo HR and Sierra 2 run HR. They picked up a run in the 4th on a wild pitch and McCormick added 2 run shot in the 5th. In the 9th the Hooks got some much needed insurance on a 2 run double from Toro. Blanco was great in relief striking out 6 in 3.2 innings. Scheetz allowed 3 runs in the 9th but Feldmann was able to come in and close the door for the win.

Note: Conine has 2 BB/18 K in 15 innings this season.
