In game two, the Cutters tied the game in the bottom of the 7th, and had the bases loaded with one out, only to see the next two batters ground into outs and strand the bases loaded.

Luis Carrasco was solid in the 2nd game, allowing just 1 run over six innings of work. He worked to contact, getting 12 ground ball outs. Carrasco did not factor into the decision, but lowered his ERA to 1.80 for the season.
