Wil Browning gave up two more runs in two innings.
The Bisons had just six hits including a single and RBI each from Ian Parmley (who had an outfield assist) and Shane Opitz who was 1/2 with a single and a sacrifice fly. Raffy Lopez was 1/2 with a double and a walk, as was Jake Elmore.

Vancouver Canadians 2, Eugene Emeralds 4
The Vancouver Canadians started off well, getting out to an early lead over the Eugene Emeralds but the offense dried up after the first inning and the Canadians lost 4-2. Kyle Weatherly started and was a hard-luck loser. He allowed just four hits and one walk in five innings, but that amounted to three runs, only one of which was earned as he struck out five. Grayson Huffman went 1 2/3 innings letting his inherited runner score but no more runs and Brayden Bouchey went an inning, giving up a run on two hits and two walks. Miguel Burgos finished the game, getting the final out via the strikeout.
The Canadians had just three hits but only one of them came after the first inning in which Reggie Pruitt and Owen Spiwak doubled with Spiwak driving in two. Chavez Young had a single later in the game.
Player of the Game: Kyle Weatherly
