Tucson took a 5-4 edge with a four-run outburst with two out in the fourth inning on five singles and a walk. Chris Robinson provided the big blow of the inning with a bases-loaded single to left that scored Ben Francisco and Gregorio Petit.

The Rainiers scored twice in the third inning to take a 3-1 lead. Poythress homered with two out after Stefen Romero had walked.

In the third inning, Tucson tied the game at 1-1 when Mike Wilson led off the inning with a solo homer, his fifth of the season.
