Lansing lost even though Mitch Nay homered. Vancouver scored a lot but their pitching let Boise score even more. It was a terrible loss for Vancouver. The Boise left fielder pitched three shutout innings and stayed pitching after Boise tied the game. The winning/losing run scored on a wild pitch. Jesus Tinoco had a bad night as Bluefield lost but Richard Urena had two more hits. The GCL Jays lost both ends of a doubleheader.

Vancouver 10 Boise 11 - 11 innings
Vancouver had the bats working and they led 9-2 in the sixth, but it was all downhill from their as the pitching gave up too many runs.

Zak Wasilewski gave up two runs through five innings but added four more in the sixth for six total runs allowed. Joe Lovecchio was the goat as he gave up four runs in the ninth to let Boise tie the game. To cap off the disaster the winning run scored on a wild pitch from Yeyfry Del Rosario.
