Then in the ninth inning, with one out, Cael Brockmeyer, who had hit his first home run in the season earlier in the game, singled and then moved to second on a ground out.

Zach Reks scored Brockmeyer on a single but he was left stranded when DJ Peters struck out to end the game. Peters had also homered earlier in the game.
