The Sea Dogs were able to get runners on base against Bergesen, with four hits and four walks, but they weren\'t able to manufacture any runs. Kam Mickolio came in to pitch with runners on first and second with nobody out in the seventh inning and got Mickey Hall to ground into a double play.
After pitching a scoreless seventh inning, Mickolio ran into trouble in the eighth. Jeff Corsaletti led the inning off with a walk and went to second on an Iggy Suarez single to left. Zachary Daeges walked to load the bases, and Julio Manon came in to relieve Mickolio. Manon got John Otness to pop out to shortstop and struck out the next two batters to get out of the inning. He retired the Sea Dogs in order in the ninth to record his eleventh save.
