Mike Hollenbeck finished with a RBI, a run and a walk for the black team. Otto Roberts suffered the red team-loss, allowing three runs with four strikeouts through three innings.
The black team jumped out to an early lead, scoring two runs in the first inning with RBI-singles by Hollenbeck and Aguilera.
