Isaac Cruz would come in next and record an inning giving up 3 runs on 3 hits with 1 run earned. Rolie Zepeda would finish it out giving up 2 unearned runs in 2 and 2/3 work striking out 6 and walking 2. Scoring for the Lions were Dominic Cruz, Isaac Cruz, and RayJ Garza. JD De Los Santos led the way at the plate going 2 for 3 and driving in 2 runs. Tristan Mejia went 1 for 3. Eddie Villarreal also went 1 for 3 with a double.
