Windy City started the scoring in the second inning when Tyler Straub doubled home Tyler Alamo. The lead would be short-lived, as the Wild Things scored four times in the third. Cody Erickson knocked home the first run with a base hit. Ryan Cox then tripled home a pair before Brett Marr lifted a sac fly to score the fourth tally.

In the third, Washington added two more, with the highlight being a Shaine Hughes RBI triple. The Wild Things ended up getting a run in the fifth on a single by JJ Fernandez, which capped the scoring. Zach Rheams added his first Bolts' homer later in the game to make it 7-2.

Every hitter with the exception of one in the lineup for Washington had at least one hit, with five notching two-hit games: JR Davis, Shaine Hughes, Hector Roa, JJ Fernandez and Stephen Lohr. Jesus Balaguer's scoreless ninth to close the game brought his scoreless streak to 15.1 innings.
