Starting pitcher Michael Main was nailed by a line drive off the bat of Yakima centerfielder Evan Frey, who was the first batter of the game. Main was pulled from the game, but it was considered to be a precautionary move and the injury is not believed to be serious.

Left-hander Ryan Falcon entered and did an admirable job, as he surrendered only one run on six hits in 4 1/3 innings. He walked none and struck out three.

The previously scuffling Mitch Moreland helped carry the offense to a 10 run output on Tuesday. Moreland was 4-for-5 with a double and three runs batted in.

Engel Beltre (2/4), Matt Lawson (2/5), and Eric Fry (2/4) also had multiple hits.

Jordan Stewart (3.2 IP) and Dan Sattler (1 IP) each hurled scoreless relief to close out the victory.
