Santa Fe scored one in the first on an RBI single Cory Elasik and scored two more in the third on a two RBI single by Miranda.

Ricky Claudio hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth to drive in the fourth run for the Saints.  In the fifth, SF broke the game open with three runs on RBI by Miranda, Brett Bozeman and Jardian Thomas.
