Stelzer did not allow an earned run and recorded four consecutive strikeouts during a run of six in a row retired from the third through the sixth. Aaron Glickstein struck out five in two blank frames and Thomas Hart tallied a pair of strikeouts in the ninth as the Boomers fanned 15. Oddo finished with two hits and four RBIs to lead the offense.
