Esmonde got the win out of the bullpen after throwing 2 2/3 scoreless innings. Matt Olson started the game and went 4 1/3 innings with eight strikeouts. At the plate, Esmonde was 3-for-4, while Olson was 2-for-2 with two RBIs and Josh Hart was 2-for-3 with two runs.
A single by Nick Tillman and back-to-back homers by Tyler Boldt and Jesse Thomas put Mill Creek ahead 4-3 in the fifth inning.
