Conor O'Halloran went six innings for Vancouver. Spokane scored one run off him on fur hits. Two relievers gave up the other three runs.

Vancouver's only run came from a Jace Bohrofen home run. He also had a double. His two hits were half of the C's four in the game. Bofrofen also threw out a runner at home with a throw on a line from right field.

The Dunedin game went into a rain delay in the top of the sixth. Up to that point it was a pitchers game, the teams had five hits between them. Grant Rogers started for the Jays and only gave up one hit over four innings.
