The Bears would add another run in second inning after Jacob Lovelace led off with a single to left. Joe Hoelle laid down a sacrifice bunt to move Lovelace to second. Lovelace would steal third and score on a Jared Nourse ground ball to third base. The Bears would not score another run until the top of the sixth when the Bears exploded for 10 runs on seven hits.
