Left fielder Jake Stenzel collected 3 extra-base hits and had 3 RBI as the Streetwalking Cheetahs outscored the Kemper Messengers 7 to 1.

Kemper was unable to recover after Streetwalking went ahead in the bottom of the 3rd inning scoring one runner using 3 hits. After two outs Stenzel doubled. Woody English was next to the plate and he lined a one-base hit scoring the run. The early run support proved sufficient for Ben Sheets(1-0) and Streetwalking. That was all the run support Sheets required. Streetwalking had 14 hits for the game and Kemper had 4.

Tippy Martinez recorded the save, his 1st. The loss was charged to Walter Johnson(0-1). He got hit hard, allowing 12 hits and 4 walks in 7 innings.
