Shintaro Fujinami (3-6) tied the game in the ninth game, but still got the win. Sam Long had three consecutive top-10s for his first save of the season and second of his career.

For athletics, Dominican Esteore Ruiz 3-1, Ramon Laureano 4-1. Cuban Diaz 4-3 with an RBI.

Brewers, Dominican Willie Adams 4-0. Mexicans Rudy Tellez 3-1, Luis Urias 1-0. Venezuela’s William Contreras is 1-1 with a run scored and an RBI, and Andrew Monasterio makes it 4-0. Puerto Rico Victor Caratini 4-1.
