Andres Rodriguez went 3-for-4 scoring a run. Yasutsugu Nishimoto went 1-for-2 with three RBI's. Kenny Held went deep for his third home run of the year on his only hit in the game. The blast was a solo shot.

Gabriel Garcia picked up the loss for the AirHogs going 4.2 innings allowing eight runs on five hits and striking out three. Jakob Cunningham pitched two innings allowing one run on four hits. Cunningham managed to strike out one Sox player. David Quinowski closed out the game with 1.1 innings of work allowing one run on one hit and striking out three.

The AirHogs travel to El Paso to take on the Diablos for another three-game series. That series is set to start Friday night at 7:05 P.M. at Cohen Stadium.
