Ben Barrone brought Midwest back within one after doubling and scoring in the eighth.

Baker walked to lead off the ninth, followed by a bunt single from Robbie Knapp. Both would be leave the game for pinch runners. With one out, Joash Brodin hit a long fly ball down the right field line. Pinch runner Garret Maines, who didn’t tag up at second base, couldn’t get back in time to avoid the double play to end the game.

Kyle Kearcher suffered the loss despite a solid outing. Kearcher (1-7) allowed three runs in six innings. Earl Oakes and P.J. Zocchi pitched three innings of scoreless relief for the Sliders.
