Yoaver Zulueta opened with two shutout innings for the Herd, overcoming two second-inning walks but striking out nobody.Hayden Juenger was beaten up for five runs and got the blown save and the loss in just two-thirds of an inning. Rafael Lantigua had two hits and two walks and Cam Eden stole two bases to give him 14 on the year and has an OPS of .760. Otto López was 2-for-2 coming off the bench after pinch-hitting for L.J. Talley.

Orelvis Martinez, Will Robertson and Phil Clarke all homered to give them five, four and two respectively on the season. Martinez subbed in for Leo Jiménez at short in the bottom of the third. Jimmy Robbins allowed four runs on four hits and six walks while whiffing four in three innings. Gabriel Ponce and Hagen Danner worked perfect frames with two punchouts apiece.

Dasan Brown belted his first home run of the season to lift his batting average to .161. Rainer Nuñez had a double among his two hits. Karl Ellison threw out two of five baserunners from behind the plate. Cade Doughty is mired in a 2-for-29 slump after going 0-for-4. Chad Dallas backed up his Northwest League Pitcher of the Week honours with his second straight quality start. The bullpen trio of Hunter Gregory, Matt Svanson and T.J. Brock combined for four innings of shutout relief with Brock getting the win with two scoreless frames. Everett looked to have taken the lead on a sacrifice fly in the 10th but the runner was called out for leaving the bag too early.

Brandon Barriera only threw 29 of 58 pitches for strikes over three innings in which he gave up four runs on three hits, three walks and a hit by pitch. He also committed a balk. Kendry Rojas gave up two runs in four innings which included a long ball but he struck out six. Tucker Toman and Peyton Williams were 0-for-4. Jalen Rudd was on base for times with a hit, a hit by pitch and two walks. Former Tampa Bay farmhand Abiezel Ramirez had two hits and a plunk and is hitting .412 in five games with the D-Jays. Despite nine hits, 12 walks and three plunks, Dunedin only scored four times.
