Both teams’ bats were relatively quiet, with no runs scored until the fifth inning. Sean Halton hit a lead-off double to get the Brewers’ bats rolling. Logan Schafer followed with a single. Then Kyle Loshe sacrificed a bunt to put the two runners into scoring position. Norichika Aoki hit an RBI single bringing both base runners home. Brewers took the lead 2-0
