Loss Mitigation crushed the Porkswords by twenty runs as Bob and Mike each had eight hits, and Nate had seven hits while also pitching a complete game win, allowing only two runs in six innings. Bob and Nate each hit for the cycle, and Mike crushed four homers in another Loss Mitigation beatdown.

Adam, the Porkswords starter, gave up a leadoff triple to Bob, and Mike drove him in with an RBI double that made the score 1-0. Adam retired the next two hitters, Nate and Norris, to end the inning, and it would be the best inning Adam and the Porkswords would have defensively in the game.
