The Quakes have been beaten twice by Lancaster JetHawks (Rockies) this weekend as they lost 6-5 at Lancaster. The game was tied 3-3 in the going to the bottom of the sixth. Parker Curry was on the mound for the Quakes.
An error by Cristian Santana put two runners on base for the JetHawks with no outs. Two outs later, Manuel Melendez doubled home both runners to put the JetHawks ahead 5-3.
The JetHawks would score one more time in the seventh. That would prove to be important when Santana hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning.

At the end of nine innings, the score was 4-4. Both teams went to each score one run in the tenth and then four runs apiece in the eleventh. Orem then scored six runs in the twelfth and Ogden could only score three runs in the bottom of the inning.
