Despite being out-hit by the Greyhounds, 7-4, the Saints capitalized on five errors and multiple miscues to build their lead. With a 2-1 advantage in the fifth inning, the Saints loaded the bases with two outs and showed some patience at the plate as Caleb Jeske (2 for 3, two RBIs, run, walk) and Casey Walker (three RBIs, two walks) earned back-to-back RBI walks to increase their lead to 4-1.
In the next inning the visitors earned some breathing room. Luis Robledo (1 for 4, RBI, run) forced an error on a hard ground ball that scored Caleb Granados, who also reached on an error to open the frame. Later in the inning, an RBI single from Jeske and another bases-loaded walk by Walker opened a 7-1 edge for the Saints.
