The Captains scored the first run of the game in the fourth inning. It came off Lansing starter righty Eric Pardinho. Pardinho a native of São Paulo, Brazil.

The Captain added a second run in the eighth inning when Bo Naylor hit his seventh home run of the season.

Captains starter Alex Royalty was masterful on the night pitching six scoreless innings allowing only three hits, issuing one base on balls and struck out four Lugnuts. With the win Royalty improves to 5-4 with a 3.53 ERA. Skylar Arias picked up the Save for Lake County pitching the final two innings and striking out three Lugnuts. The save was Arias’s third of the season. Pardinho took the loss for the Lugnuts. He pitched five innings allowing one run, it was earned on four base hits. He also issued one base on balls and struck out five Captains. With the loss the Brazilian phenom falls to 0-1 with a 3.00 ERA.
