Sean Burroughs struck quickly for the Ducks in the bottom of the first with a two-out RBI single to left field off of Riversharks starter Jeff Singer. Camden jumped in front with three runs in the fourth against Ducks starter Darin Downs. A RBI double to left by Joel Guzman and a two-run homer to left by Daniel Rockett, both with two outs, did the damage.

Singer (1-0) earned the win, tossing six innings, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six. Downs (2-4) took the loss, yielding three runs on six hits and one walk over seven innings with six strikeouts. Matt Gorgen collected his 26th save of the year with a scoreless ninth.

Burroughs led the Flock with two hits and two RBI.
