Julio Urias was down 2 to 0 after the first 3 batters as Renfro doubled in 2, Urias then settled down and held the Storm scoreless until the 5th, striking out 6 along the way. But then with one on and one out in the 5th, Renfro hit a home run to make it 4-0. The Storm scored one more to make it 5 runs against Urias.
Manager P.J. Forbes said after the game that the Quakes didn't adjust right away to the Storm's aggressiveness (3 hits in the first 5 pitches seen). After that Forbes said "after the first inning you saw what [Urias] is capable of...I thought innings 2, 3, and 4 he was really good."
Forbes said that Urias' strength "are his three pitches, he has to locate them, he has not done that consistently yet."
The Quakes offense was shut down (and shut out), Corey Seager did steal his 3rd base of the season.
