Kole Calhoun smashed 2 homeruns and scored 3 times and Craig Kimbrel performed beautifully in relief as the Jake Taylor's ballclub beat the Vinton Vikings by a score of 8 to 6.

It was a good day for Jake Taylor's thanks to Calhoun. He delivered a base-hit in the 1st inning, delivered a solo blast in the 3rd inning and smashed a bases-empty 'big-fly' (his 3rd of the season) in the 7th inning. Kimbrel earned the save with a perfect ninth, his 2nd save.

The winning pitcher was Cole Hamels(1-1) who allowed 5 runs in 6 innings. Felix Hernandez(1-1) was the loser. He allowed 5 homeruns in 5 innings of work.
