SF struck first, scoring three runs in the first on two hits and a CF error. The Saints tacked on one more in the second and three in the fourth on a Caleb Denmark single and another costly error by the Patriots.
The top of the Santa Fe order combined for six hits with Casey Scoggins and Jarred Mederos each finishing 3-for-5. Denmark finished 1-for-2 with three RBI and Josh Stewart with 2-for-3.
