Offensively, Austin Paschke and Andrew Hermanson had two hits a piece. Luke Doyle and Brody Clifford each had a hit and an RBI.
In the nightcap, YC fell behind 5-0 but netted 4 runs in their half of the fourth inning to pull within 1. However, that was as close as the Roughriders would get. Salt Lake scored 1 run in the sixth inning and plated 4 runs in the 8th inning to put the lead out of reach.
