Marlon Byrd hit a two-run single and Adam Melhuse added an RBI single in a four-run fourth inning. Every runner reached base with two outs during the decisive frame. That was all the support Kameron Loe would need, as he allowed two runs during the outing.
Jeremy Bonderman had nobody on with two outs in the third inning, but allowed four runners to score, putting the Tigers in an early hole. Bonderman battled, allowing no more runs during the contest, but the Tigers could only provide three runs in support.
