The GCL Blue Jays needed 11 innings to defeat the GCL Yankees West by a 3-2 score. In the end, the game was decided by the international tie breaker with Davis Schneider starting the inning at second base who was moved to third by Aldo Ovando's single and a fielder's choice by Jonelvy Molina brought Schneider in to score the game's winning run. Dominic Abbadessa was 2/4 while Otto Lopez and Logan Warmoth were each 1/4 with a double. Jonelvy Molina's second RBI came at the end of the game, while his first one of the game resulted from his first home run of the season, in the seventh inning.
