Sugar Land plated two runs in the opening inning on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Kevin Ahrens and an RBI double from Travis Scott. A run in the fifth on Anthony Giansanti’s RBI single and another in the sixth on Scott’s solo homer to right increased the advantage to 4-0. A two-run single by Ahrens in the seventh rounded out the scoring.
