Not much offense going on in this one as the Black Sox had only 1 hit through 6 innings and 3 hits for the Surge. It was in the bottom of the 6th however, when Vee Desai would triple on a miss played ball by the Surge Left fielder with two outs to give the Black Sox a 3-0 lead.
Tyler Hill doubled for the Surge to deep left center field but the Surge couldn’t bring him in.

The Surge went with right hander Donnell Hightower who pitched a very good game for the Surge going 4.2 innings giving up just 1 hit and 1 earned run.
When speaking with Manager Mark Mason on slow start, he replied, “I’m not worried about that, I’m developing these guys in a short period of time to get this team right and potentially help some of these guys advance. In the end, its the final two games that count. We are fine!”.
